3 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system is used by the whole area, not just Drake students, so it was common to share it with sketchy people.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: We have free bus passes for the year, but not many people utilize them because the DART is kind of difficult.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: So long as you have a school id with the sticker you can ride the DART busses for free, I have plenty of friends with jobs off campus, and they all rely on the busses to get to and from work. Cars are handy for last minute trips, or a further job, or even just going into the city, but aren't necessary, and to be honest parking passes are crazy expensive, so busses are just cheaper altogether.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There is bus line that we can use for free with our student id's! The stop is near campus but malls are a ways away.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There is no need for transportation around campus as the campus is not that large. However, if one wishes to venture far enough outside of campus, I would recommend that they have a car or a friend with a car as the only option, aside from a taxi, is the Dart Bus. The Dart Bus is public transportation, which all Drake students get for free. The Dart Bus can be unreliable concerning timing and can have some odd people on it.
