4 College Sophomore

Transportation: You can use the public bus for free by showing your id and you can rent cars that you can use for around town and traveling. The shuttle is a good way to travel to different locations at campus.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: When looking at transportation between my permanent home and the school the airport is best. However, when between different towns that are closer to Anchorage it is passenger bus or train.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Its cold in the winter waiting for a bus and everything is very spread out. Best bet is to get a car

2 College Freshman

Transportation: Public transportation off campus is virtually nonexistent. The on campus bus stops are exposed which is miserable in the wintertime. A car is the easiest way to get around both on and off campus. Campus parking is limited however.

5 College Student

Transportation: There is a lot of information on transportation options. There is a shuttle that goes between the different parts of campus and different locations. Also with our student ID, the "wolfcard," we have free access to public transportation which is bike accessible and incredibly convenient.
