We’re a tiny campus in a small town; there aren’t taxis driving around waiting to pick people up. The best way to get around town is to walk, and the best way to get to the mall or Wal-Mart is to bum a ride off a friend. If you need to get to the airport or the train station in Harrisburg, ask a friend to drive you. As the city is about 45 minutes away, it is not asking a lot to have someone drop you off there. If you cannot find anyone, there are taxi services close to school, which come in handy if you need to go to Allentown or Philadelphia, which are farther away.

There are no campus shuttles because they aren’t necessary. You can make it from one end of campus to the other in about 10 minutes. The only time there is shuttle service is when there is an event going on at Bucknell University or another nearby location that students may be interested in attending. There was recently a speaker at Bucknell that SU helped to pay for, so there was a shuttle bus to the Bucknell campus, but there were only about 12 students on the bus, give or take, because most people just drove there.
