There is no need to ride a shuttle around campus because everything is within walking distance. However, a student's best bet for getting around town is having a car or asking a friend for a ride somewhere. Wesleyan has a shuttle that runs on Friday nights (usually after dinner) and only costs $1, but it only makes trips to a few nearby places. Fortunately, for students without transportation, there is a shopping center with a grocery store, restaurants, and a pharmacy within walking distance of the campus. They also have the option of using the local bus system, Macon-Bibb County Transit Authority, which has stops near the College. As noted on the transit's website, the regular fare for a one-way trip is $1.25. Aside from buses, Macon also has a few taxi services that are able to take a student to and from wherever she needs to go.
Depending on the rates of the taxi service, it may be more affordable for a group of students to share a taxi, especially if they want to go downtown. According to students, if a group of two to three people splits the fare of a one-way trip, they normally spend between $4 and $8 each. Ride-giving generosity also applies to long-distance traveling, such as driving home on a long weekend or going to the airport. Groome Transportation takes students to the Atlanta airport, but with price listings that range from $34 to $63, paying for a friend's gas may be easier.
