Transportation: I drive or walk everywhere, because I usually don't have time to wait for a bus. The people in College Station generally don't know how to drive if you ask anyone, but I think the chaos is caused by the combination of several different driving styles; people from the DFW and Houston areas are used to having to force their way into traffic while people from small towns are used to having an open road. Driving in College Station is something everyone has to get used to, but in the end, I don't think it's that bad.

There are really two main ways to get around campus: bus or bike. A&M is a large campus, so the buses are probably your best bet for getting around campus. The University has many buses, each with a distinct name and number. For example, bus 8 is "Howdy." Theses buses run every 15 minutes until 7 p.m., when they run every hour. The buses will take you practically anywhere you need to go on campus, and there are even buses that will take you off campus to places like H.E.B., the mall, skating rink, and some apartments. As for the fee, it’s included in your tuition. You also have the option of biking to class—almost everybody here has a bike, from mountain bikes to cool cruisers. The option is yours.

When it comes to getting around the city, it isn't that big, so there really isn’t any need for many taxis or buses, although they certainly do exist. Having a car is nice to get off campus to do shopping or having fun, but you can easily take a bus or hitch a ride with a friend, which is probably best so you don’t have to deal with the hassle of paying for a permit and trying to find somewhere to park. It might be a little inconvenient at times, but you can live without a car. The town is so small and the people are so nice that you’ll be able to figure out how to get where you need to go without too much hassle.
