Vehicle transportation is not an essential necessity when the basic stores are about a block away. Also, students use Spadra Trail to walk across town all the way to Rogers Avenue. A car is great to have, but it's not a must-have at the University of the Ozarks.
Students are always willing to help each other out when it comes to giving someone a ride somewhere, as long as the other person can help with paying the gas cost. The University does have bus shuttles that transport a lot of students to Wal-Mart or other school gatherings. Long-distance transportation can be provided by the University bus shuttles or by carpooling with other students on campus. Clarksville has no taxi services or public buses, but limos and airport transportation are available. Being able to get around campus does not require a car, so the majority of students rides bikes, walks, and even skateboards to class. The University does all it can to make transportation not a huge obstacle for its residents.
