4 College Freshman

Transportation: The campus shuttles effectively transport students between North, South, and East campuses, but small bridges in the city force the shuttles to take indirect routes between the three.

Transportation: If you give yourself enough time to get from North to South to East campus, the campus buses/shuttles are great. Always be at the bus stop AT LEAST 15-20 minutes before you have to be at your destination. Would be better if they posted an exact timetable that buses/shuttles adhered to. Right now, you kind of have to estimate when you'll be at your destination, making sure to factor in 10-15 minutes of waiting at the bus stop in some cases.

Transportation: There are many shuttles that run throughout the day, but Lowell traffic can be terrible which will often slow up the commute. Always allow yourself plenty of time to make it to class.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Buses and shuttles from campus to campus to apartments are included in your fees and they're useful. You can also get to the train station and to Walmart by shuttle depending on the day. Train station will take you to Boston

College Sophomore

Transportation: I don't use campus transportation.
