4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I find that the transportation availability is fantastic here. I do not need a car because I can 99 percent of the time get to somewhere that I need to go, without any complications. Even if the train or bus can't get me somewhere, I can also rent out a zip car from UNH. The amtrak is a little expensive and sometimes the on campus bus system gets crowded, but those are my only complaints.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The busses run constantly and have never disapointed me.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The only problem is that the buses do not run often enough on the weekends.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The bus is fairly reliable.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Lots of buses to go around buses and off campus to towns such as Portsmouth and Dover

The shuttles around campus and to surrounding towns are usually efficient and on time, mostly due to the small size of Durham and the general area. Around campus, the only shuttle really needed is the West Edge parking lot shuttle. The worst time for buses is around 4 or 5 p.m. when most classes let out and traffic is at its worst. This is when buses can get up to 45 minutes late because there are no alternate roads to take.

To get out of town, transportation services run a route every hour to surrounding towns. During the week, this service goes until 10 p.m., but on the weekends, the service stops running much earlier, so living off campus can be an inconvenience. To get to Logan International Airport, the best way is to have a friend drive you because the drive is about an hour. If you can’t find a ride, the train goes right through Durham and runs several times per day.
