Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

For some students, taking buses and subways is a convenient way to commute, but others think it is a hassle because they must use multiple forms of transportation. The buses tend to get crowded at peak hours (early morning, late afternoon). For some students, it takes them about an hour to get to school via bus and 15 minutes by car. When taking the subways, people must use a MetroCard. When taking a bus, MetroCards are not necessary, but are convenient because otherwise passengers must use exact change (only coins). The fare for buses and trains is $2.25, with free transfers. A "transfer" means that if one takes a bus to the train station, the payment the student used for the bus will allow him or her to ride the train for free and vice versa.

MetroCards can be bought either from subway stations, gas stations, or the QC bookstore. When using change for the bus, it is important to note that bus drivers do not handle change; therefore, if a student does not have the exact amount, he or she may run into an awkward moment when he or she must ask passengers to chip in for the exact $2.25 fare. It is highly recommended to ensure there is enough money on the MetroCard or otherwise have exact change before getting on the bus. Card balance may be checked only from the machines at subway stations, and it is recommended that students refill their card with at least $10 to $20.
