5 College Junior

Transportation: There is a ride to the McAllen bus station from the university and is free to students. Also, there is another metro that takes students to another far buildings on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Any student can use the shuttle/bus for free which is very convenient if you want to go to and from out university. Parking is always a hassle for drivers though and is much better to just be dropped off.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Theirs not much transportation provided but driving to UTPA gets tiring at times.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Since the university is located farther than where i currently reside

4 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: I would use the shuttle bus to get to school and it was always fresh. The metro bus that takes you from your city to school is free and has wifi networking which I think is great. Especially when you have homework you like to work in at any given time. Overall the transportation system is taken care of.
