3 College Junior

Transportation: West Chester University, while not a large campus, is divide into 2 sections, north and south campus. For those who don't already live on campus a majority of the students commute by automobile. Other students who commute and are more out of town take SEPTA buses which run regularly throughout the campus. There is also a shuttle bus that runs every 10 to 15 minutes between north and south campus.

3 College Student

Transportation: As a freshman, the only way to get around locally is to get a rid with an upperclassmen or walk to your destination.

College Freshman

Transportation: I don't really use the campus transportation options

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttle buses are usually very crowded especially in between class times. Almost all of my classes are located on south campus so I need to take a bus. I usually do not make it to class on time if I have a commute from north to south and only 10 minutes to get there.
