If Binghamton is anything, it's an easily navigable campus. During the warmer months, students can be seen using bikes, skateboards, and Rollerblades on the paved sidewalks all around campus. If outdoor transportation isn't your style or if you're feeling too lazy to walk, then the residential shuttle is the right choice for you. It comes every 15 minutes, and travels and stops on a circular route around campus. The residential shuttle, like all of the busing services, is completely free and student-run. The free busing includes multiple routes to designated stops off campus like the mall, Walmart, and certain stops downtown.
If you find yourself either on campus or downtown on a Saturday night and need a ride to get somewhere or get home, there is a surplus of cabs downtown waiting to take tired students back to campus from a night of partying. Cabs can also be called to campus or anywhere else around the city to take you where you need to go. All of the cab rides in Binghamton are super cheap, starting at $3 one-way for a group of four or more. The prices for groups any less than four or single riders can vary. Getting out of town is often simple, as well. Greyhound runs frequent bus schedules out of downtown Binghamton; Escape is a cheap and convenient way to get home for holiday breaks, and it is only a matter of time before you meet someone who has a car and can drive you to where you need to go. Getting around or getting out, transportation in Binghamton is a breeze.
