3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I haven't use any of the public or school transportation. I drive my own vehicle.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Students get to ride the public bus for free.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: They do a great job picking up and dropping off students where need be. Transportation here is critical for the very cold winters and they even have a call line you can call for wherever you may be needing pick up!

4 College Student

Transportation: They work well for me

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The campus shuttle is great but there is no shuttle available on weekends at all and the hours cut off a little early for weekdays, having them run an extra hour would be nice. They also don't go downtown to the other campus building but once a day, which is inconvenient, you can't even call to get downtown earlier than the one run. The city bus is free for students but the routes are so long you take an hour to get most anywhere, and they also don't run on Sundays at all and very limited on Saturdays. Taxis are extremely expensive.
