4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are buses that run constantly and have multiple pick up/drop off locations. SafeRide is also an option at night.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I haven't used the transportation on campus. I know many people who do and they seem to like it.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Charlotte has on campus busing as well as buses that go around the city of Charlotte

3 College Junior

Transportation: First off, it pays a lot of money to park on campus. I have my own car and I honestly don't feel like I should have to pay what I pay. The availability of parking is horrendous. If you want a good parking spot, your best bet is to get there before the 9:30AM classes begin because that's when the majority of commuters begin their day. On-campus, there are buses that run periodically. Coming from a commuter I see them quite frequently around campus. You're able to walk anywhere around campus but the buses are there for people to use. There are cars to rent and some resident students do have cars so usually people carpool whenever there's somewhere they need to go.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The buses on campus do not run on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. There is also a 2 dollar bus fee for the busses that go off campus.
