The transportation used most at Penn State Altoona is the Amtran Campus Loop. The Campus Loop is a route of the Amtran bus system that goes to all the major off-campus student-only apartment complexes and stores in the area. The Campus Loop is free and allows students to easily get around and get amenities like groceries.
If you want to get anywhere that isn’t on the Campus Loop, simply show your Penn State student ID card on any other Amtran bus to get where you need to go for free. Many students use this form of transportation to get to and from their part-time jobs during the week. The buses leave approximately every 15 to 20 minutes depending on where you need to go. The transfer station near the Downtown campus can take students farther away if they choose.
