3 College Freshman

Transportation: buses are usually on time

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The free bus system that the University has in place is great for getting to classes on a rainy day and also great for getting you to the lots that you have to park your car in. It is also a convenient way to get to Dickson street when you are in a hurry.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The buses are great and pretty much run on time. They are easy to figure out and use and they overlap in best place so there's probably more then one way to get where you are going.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I never have to worry about getting from the parking lot for off-campus students up to campus. There is always a bus running and if there isn't going to be they make sure to notify us.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I like that the transportation is free, except for it being included in our tuition, and how easy it is to find a bus that will take you where you need to go.

For students who don't feel like shelling out $70 for a parking pass, there's always Razorback Transit. Razorback Transit is free, and it goes all over the city of Fayetteville. Students will run into some strange characters on the bus, but the majority of those riding during the day is students. Once students get to campus, they can take advantage of the Razorbikes program. With Razorbikes, students register with Transit and Parking, and get a pass code which unlocks any Razorbike on campus. Students ride the bike all day, and then lock it back up when they're done—and it's free.

With Fayetteville being a relatively small city, there isn't anything more than a 10-minute drive to any one point in the city. Interstate 540 is easily accessible from a lot of main roads in the city, which can cut driving times in half. The scooter has also made a comeback in Fayetteville. It is the best way to get around, although some of the hills can be challenging. There are plenty of places to park scooters on campus, as long as students have a permit.
