4 College Freshman

Transportation: If you need to get somewhere in the neighboring areas it is great, passed a certain point is more difficult and time consuming.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: I am not able to have a car as a freshman and it is very inconvenient at times especially since I've been stranded when the shuttle has failed to pick up.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Love the shuttle system and the train downtown is super helpful for long distance travelers.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttles are usually very reliable and get you to the beach, Vons, downtown, and the library. Dial-a-ride is the campus's transportation for going outside the bus lines or setting up a specific time to travel. Dial-a-ride is not helpful at all and can't be relied on.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Westmont will not let first-year students have a vehicle unless they have medical issues. Never the less the school puts in a good effort when it comes to transportation by having a Westmont shuttle service on campus. Shuttles usually come around t their stop on the hour, however if you are on a crunch for time and need to be somewhere fast, you can call "Dial-a-Ride" and get picked up and dropped off outside of the shuttle service circuit.
