3 College Senior

Transportation: We have the shuttle service, but only one person runs it so it ins't as robust as it could be.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: If you want to venture outside of Centre it's very difficult to do so. You have to have a car.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Try very hard to have everyone a ride to any airport.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: No public transportation. You either bring your own car or rely on peers.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Centre College is located in Danville, which is a small town in the middle of Kentucky. Overall, there is no need for much public transportation. If you bring a car to school or have a friend with a car, you will be fine. Many people stay on or near campus for most of the school year.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Transportation is virtually nonexistent, because there just isn't a need for it. Centre is a small campus that's easy to walk, and downtown Danville is just a few blocks off campus. The only transportation you may ever need is going to a restaurant or Wal-Mart, or maybe for a trip up to Lexington. Luckily, you'll rarely do these activities alone, and your friends will probably have a car, as most Centre students do.
