4 College Junior

Transportation: Airport is only a couple minutes away and there is a shuttle bus available.

4 College Senior

Transportation: The transportation options at Worcester State University is great. The shuttle runs every hour from 6am-7pm, there are two city buses running every 1/2 hour from 4a-10p making it accessible for pretty much everything from malls to other schools to libraries to downtown and just about anything.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttles to the surrounding area aren't the greatest, but I'm a commuter so thankfully I don't have to deal with them too often.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public transportation in Worcester is just as good as any other small city. Anyone can call Red or Yellow cab at any point in the night and they'll be there within minutes. For leaving Worcester, students may take the train pretty easily as well. The train's only inconvenience is that its departure times are generously spaced apart and the traffic on the way there is also usually pretty brutal.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Taxis are the best option, but it gets expensive. On Thursdays there is a shuttle that takes you right to Club Universe. Many under age students go there because it is 18+. If you aren't into Club U, there are several bars within walking distance of the club. Many people take the Club U Bus and walk to Mahoney's. That bus runs until 2 am. It's only on Thursdays though. Any other night you may need a taxi or designated driver. I find designated driving the best option, especially for saving money. However, taxis aren't too expensive if you have a full car.
