3 College Freshman

Transportation: I usually ride with my boyfriend and have only ridden the bus once. It took forever.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: it's not horrible but it needs to extend stop options or open more routes

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Campus shuttles are included in tuition. They are very helpful when it is raining or when you just want to avoid walking half a mile to class. These shuttles typically take about the same time to get to any part of campus as it would to walk.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our buses run constantly so their should be no reason for someone to not get to glass because of lack of transportation.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: the T is my best friend.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Although most everything you need will be located within walking distance, the occasional need or want to go further out can be satisfied with multiple transportation options. A car, in most cases, is the best means of getting from point A to point B.

The walks to and from class are not that harsh, and may actually help ward off the "Freshman 15," but "the T" is excellent if you would rather not walk. It is as easy as stepping on and sitting-you do not need a card to board. The only situation that creates an absolute necessity for most students is the ability to travel home for breaks.
