3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are many shuttle and bus options through the public bus system as well as through the campus. I personally prefer to have my own transportation, so I use my own car more often then not.

College Sophomore

Transportation: I have always had my own vehicle so I'm not quite sure what the transportation options are that are available.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The nearby apartment complexes have free shuttles that run to and from the school. The cost to go down down is fairly cheap and a great idea if you want to have fun on the weekend and be safe at the same time! WIN-WIN!

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Finding parking on campus can be a pain, so taking the bus and getting some walking exercise is a better choice.

3 College Student

Transportation: The best option I find is to live on campus, then parking is a non-issue. For off-campus transportation the shuttle is the best bet. The campus shuttle is very convenient and has many pickup locations, plus it runs pretty late at night.

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.
