3 College Freshman

Transportation: Traffic is a huge issue and there is hardly anywhere to park without buying a very expensive hang tag and parking very far away. It is my only complaint so far.

The University does provide shuttle services.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The bus system attached to the University is paid for already with your student fees and will get you most anywhere you want to go that isn't within immediate walking distance of campus. To get around campus, it is usually faster to walk, but if you've got a long way to go and only ten minutes to get there, the bus is there for you. A car is useful for going off-campus or off the bus lines, but not absolutely necessary.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus route makes little sense because it's one way, but it goes to a lot of places, including the big Wal-mart and the mall. It's usually clean, in my experience, but is pretty much pointless once you're already on campus. Parking downtown can be a nightmare, as can finding places to park when you live on campus OR when you drive to campus. Parking is VERY strict and I know many people who have gotten tickets. You need to move your car when there's a football game and you can often get ticketed if you don't move it back in time. Parking spaces can be expensive AND still inconvenient. Having a car is not a plus.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: In terms of getting to campus from home, Fayetteville's remoteness makes it pretty difficult to access commercially. Most charter buses don't drive this far into the Ozarks. In terms of transport on campus, I'd say you're probably just better of walking or riding a bike. With how many stops the buses make, the only reason I'd wait on one would be if I were desperate to avoid a storm or something.

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.
