Most students' first choice in transportation is taking a taxi. Though it may be slightly expensive spending money on cabs, it beats having to drive yourself, and many freshmen do not have cars on campus. Baltimore has a lot of public transportation services, but most students opt for the quick pickup of a taxi. For transportation around campus and to and from the Towson Town Center, students take the Collegetown Shuttle. It travels to Towson and stops at all of the surrounding colleges, including Towson, Johns Hopkins, and Goucher, to name a few.This service is free to all students with a school ID. There are a few stops on Loyola's campus, and the shuttle picks up regularly on weekends. The times are very convenient, although it is not always as reliable on weekdays.
Getting into and out of Baltimore is fairly easy with quick access to the airport. There are a few shuttles and cab services that all cost about the same to get you to the airport. If you prefer to stay grounded for your transportation, Baltimore has both Greyhound and Amtrak stations not far from campus. Student Life has also put together shuttles that transport students to the airport for $5–$10 in the days leading up to the bigger holidays and school breaks, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break.
