It's not hard to make your way around Greensboro if you don't have a car. In recent years, the Greensboro Transit Authority recognized the needs of its many college students and implemented the Higher Education Area Transit (HEAT) buses to get students to campus and a few other locations around town. It's kind of like an updated version of a big yellow school bus, except HEAT buses are bright orange.
Greensboro has all of your non-school-related needs covered, too. The GTA buses run routes during the week, making it easier for residents to get where they need to go. If you don't feel like riding with other people, the town is full of taxi cabs, ready and willing to take you to your destination. For those times when you just have to get out of the city, Greensboro also has its own airport. Of course, for the everyday necessities of getting around Greensboro, most residents and students alike rely on good old-fashioned automobiles. Whether it's yours or a friend's, a car is your best bet for getting you where you need to go.
