3 College Freshman

Transportation: The on-campus shuttle is helpful but not having a car is a headache. The public transportation is horrible.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Transportation on and off campus is free with our student I.D.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The good thing is that public buses allow students to ride for free. The bad news is, they have limited the amount of transports and the times available for the campus. It would help if our university had several off campus buses instead of the one that comes every hour.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have two shuttle buses that constantly go around campus. They drive a little slow so walking is good. There are also many bus stops around the campus to get off campus to various places.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are always shuttles all over campus, everywhere you look.

Students at Savannah State University rarely speak of riding public transportation, formally known as Chatham Area Transit (CAT). The CAT shouldn't cost more than $3 round trip. Most students prefer driving their own vehicles or riding with a friend, though. In addition, Savannah State has a free campus shuttle that runs on and off campus. So on that rainy day when you need to get to class, simply ride the shuttle; it will become very beneficial. 

For the most part, with long-distance traveling (such as traveling back and forth to Atlanta), many would car pool with a friend or ride Greyhound. Greyhound costs approximately $50 each way.
