3 College Senior

Transportation: If you don't have a car and you can wait outside in the heat or the cold for God knows how long, then the campus shuttle bus isn't so bad. Especially if you live at one of the places it actually drops off at. I don't recommend taking taxis unless you're desperate. Usually freshmen are desperate. One of the taxi drives made a pass at me once. It was awkward. I ran for help.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I am not sure where the campus shuttle is, but I live on campus so I do not have a need for the shuttle. I also have a car within walking distance so I do not need other means of transportation.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I personally don't go off campus much but it would be nice to have a car so that I could go home whenever I wanted to without having to wait for my parents to pick me up.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Salisbury University provides a convenient, no-cost shuttle service which runs through the major apartment complexes. The shuttle comes every fifteen minutes. Unfortunately, there is no long-distance transportation provided at no-cost for students. The only option (if a student did not have a way of safely traveling to campus) would be the various taxi companies around the Salisbury area. These are relatively inexpensive but inconvenient because of the long wait times.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: If you don't have a car its hard to go anywhere during the day

Transportation is not one of Salisbury's strong suits. Many restaurants and stores are within walking distance from campus, but a car is still necessary to get to most places because public transportation in Salisbury is slow and unreliable when it is available. The University provides shuttle service between the main campus and the University-owned apartments off campus. There are also buses that run between campus and the mall, but only on weekends. Finally, Saferide provides transportation after parties in neighborhoods close to campus. 

While local transportation is lacking, long-distance transportation is always available. The BayRunner Shuttle runs to many surrounding towns and to BWI—Baltimore-Washington International Airport—daily for modest rates. Overall, the general consensus among students is that while walking is a good option, a car is definitely recommended.
