3 College Junior

Transportation: West Chester University, while not a large campus, is divide into 2 sections, north and south campus. For those who don't already live on campus a majority of the students commute by automobile. Other students who commute and are more out of town take SEPTA buses which run regularly throughout the campus. There is also a shuttle bus that runs every 10 to 15 minutes between north and south campus.

3 College Student

Transportation: As a freshman, the only way to get around locally is to get a rid with an upperclassmen or walk to your destination.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttle buses are usually very crowded especially in between class times. Almost all of my classes are located on south campus so I need to take a bus. I usually do not make it to class on time if I have a commute from north to south and only 10 minutes to get there.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The shuttles are used for students to get to and from South Campus to North Campus for either classes, South Campus apartments, or for parking. The shuttles come to the dorm area every 10 to 15 minutes. There is a phone app that tracks where the shuttles are.
