3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Busses will take you anywhere, but you usually need to transfer atleast once or twice. Bus passes are half off, zip cars are almost always open, most kids have cars because their commuters, most residents have cars because they want them, they don't need them. All busses that go to the colleges terminal are trolleys, a nice touch. They only go to kenedy plaza in providence though ( they have stops by campus). If you want to go out side of providence you need to read up on the bus routs because they don't run 24/7 and can be time consuming rides at times.

Transportation: There should be later RIPTA times leaving the campus on weeknights.

Transportation: I've never really taken transportation at school so I wouldn't know much about it

3 College Student

Transportation: The most popular transportation is the campus shuttle. It is free for students for every time we use the transportation however is included in the tution. The downfall of the shuttle is that it only transports the students around campus, not off. It runs in the same cycle every 30 minutes and can take you anywhere on campus, even if it's not listed.

3 College Junior

Transportation: RIC is a commuter school so not many students take the bus.
