With all the parking woes, not having a car at TCU may actually be easier. The local bus system and taxi services provide a fairly dependable means of transportation around the Fort Worth area. Sometimes the buses run late, but it is not difficult for students who don't have cars to find rides with friends. Public transportation may not provide the most convenient modes of transportation, but the major bus stop on TCU's campus makes transportation more manageable.
Students who don't want to rely on public transportation, or those who need transportation on a regular basis, should bring their car to school, despite the parking difficulties. For students who don't have cars, taxi services are recommended, although they can be a little expensive. Public transportation in Fort Worth may not be the best, but it is functional and may help alleviate the daily parking headaches facing so many students.
