3 College Senior

Transportation: There is no public transportation in the town of Prescott but for the most part, that's okay. Prescott College is only a few blocks away from the center of downtown and grocery stores are within walking distance. Off campus students usually live within a mile radius from campus. There is a shuttle that takes students to the grocery store multiple times throughout the week. Most students walk, bike, or drive cars. Taxis exist in Prescott but I have never witnessed any Prescott College student utilize them.

College Junior

Transportation: I don't ever use public transportation, i bike, walk, or bum a ride from friends

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Since Prescott is a pretty small city (more of a large town, really) there is no public transportation, only taxis, which you have to call. Most things you will actually need to get to (grocery stores, downtown...) are easily within walking or biking distance, but having a car can be really nice to get out of town.

College Junior

Transportation: The school is very small and the town it is in is very small as well so there really isn't a need for any transportation at all. Anything not in walking distance can easily be biked to or one can find a ride with fellow students.

Transportation: I live in Tucson. I had to have my own car.
