Public transportation is rarely ever used by Furman students. Greenville is a city primarily traversed by cars, and Furman students are no different. The overwhelming majority bring their own cars with them to school. The AFS Shuttle, or the drunk bus, is run by Furman student volunteers on the weekends. The shuttle has been an extremely positive initiative by the association of Furman Students as a guaranteed sober ride on the weekends. However, there is only one shuttle causing students to have to wait over an hour sometimes before they are picked up.
Greenville's public transportation system is comprised of city buses, but most Furman students are unfamiliar with the system. There is no bus stop on Furman's campus, leaving students without a car with few options other than bumming a ride or borrowing a car from a friend.
