Transportation: There are some walking distance places. However it's better to have a car if you want to enjoy going out and eating at new places and finding neat areas in L.A.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Transportation is on the minds of a lot of students, but Biola offers opportunities aside from off-campus transport options with the WeCar. Biola has two to three WeCars on campus and rents the vehicles out to students in need of a car for the day, week, or year. These relatively new cars are very safe and are not in use for extended periods of time, leaving them open and available to anyone in need. Aside from that, bus stops are located close to Biola's campus and give students a cheaper—albeit longer—route to take. Usually, to make the car rides cheaper or the bus rides seem shorter, students travel in groups, pooling their money together to save on the trip.

Because Biola's campus isn't so large that a student couldn't walk across it in 20 minutes, there are no campus shuttles. In addition to this, cabs are not readily available unless called in advance. But if students are unable to hitch a ride with their friends who already have cars, walking is usually favored over busing and using the WeCars. Biking is another popular form of transportation (not to mention a healthier form) that students often exploit. Students are allowed to bike in most areas at Biola and thus literally go the extra mile when needing to get groceries or go into town.
