Transportation: Spokane has decent public transportation, but hours are limited.

4 College Junior

Transportation: lots of options but not bery reliable public transportation

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Gonzaga is in a city, but Spokane really isn't that large of a city. Pretty much everywhere that a student would need to go is within walking distance. On Friday and Saturday nights there is a free shuttle that runs from campus to downtown, which is convenient in the Winter, but it is only about a 15-20 minute walk on the Centennial Trail. Public transportation is available, and it isn't too expensive.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are only airport shuttles at Christmas.
