4 College Junior

Transportation: I TRAVEL FROM OUT OF TOWN SO THE SHUTTLES ARE GREAT . WE NEED SOME MORE OUT OF TOWN SHUTTLES. ALSO DURING THE SUMMER TOO WOULD BE GREAT

5 College Senior

Transportation: Almost every off-campus housing location has a free campus shuttle. Also, there are many shuttles that go basically everywhere. There is even a shuttle to downtown Orlando on the weekends.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Other than school buses, there is no effective bus system

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Although I haven't attended the main campus yet, I have been heavily researching it for the upcoming fall semester when I will be there in grad school. Apparently the transportation is great due to the free UCF shuttle and buses.

3 College Junior

Transportation: There is a free shuttle to campus. There is a knightslynx bus that is free to students with school id! The lynx bus has a stop at campus however there is a fee.

Orlando is a sprawling metropolitan area with lots to do and many ways to get there. From the city bus line and the Lynx to local taxi companies, there's a quick, easy, and affordable ride for every student.

Travel to and from campus is also convenient and available when classes are in session. Although the transportation in Orlando is more than reliable, it's a definite advantage to have a car. Either that, or try to find a friend who has one. Hey, at least we're honest.
