Since campus is fairly "out of the way" and 20 minutes from Wilkes-Barre (the biggest city in the area), most students have cars on campus, all except freshmen. Public transportation is rarely used by students, but if some students need it, the LCTA (Luzerne County Transportation Authority) buses come on campus every hour of the day and will take students where they need to go. This is usually the way to go if the MU shuttle isn't running.
The MU shuttle runs just about every day and will take students into the Wilkes-Barre area to go shopping, hit up the movies, or buy groceries. Shuttles are always willing to come pick students up. Students are given a phone number to call, and once they call, the ride is on its way. In terms of other transportation options, cabs are harder to get on campus, only because of how far away from the school they actually are. They will only pick up students traveling a longer distance, and sometimes even that won't bribe them to come to campus. Generally, since Misericordia is away from everything, it's harder to get public transportation and definitely not convenient.
