Whether you live on-campus or off-campus, getting around a college campus can be a challenge. I went to a college that was located on a hill, and of course, I lived at the bottom of the hill while my classes were at the top (and then at the bottom, then back to the top.) Parking was either non-existent, permit-only, or expensive so driving wasn’t an option. Does this sound like something you or your child might face at college? There are a few ways to help you get around campus easier. Here are a few college transportation tips for college students who need a break from all the walking.
Use an Electric Scooter
College textbooks can weigh from 2-7 pounds! Add a few books to a backpack and suddenly a quick walk across campus becomes a mini-cardio workout. To give yourself (and your joints) a break, you can use an electric scooter like the Jetson Quest Electric Scooter.*
With a powerful 250W hub motor and top speeds of 15mph, the Jetson Quest Electric Scooter will let you get around campus without breaking a sweat. The Jetson Quest Electric Scooter’s foldable design lets you easily fold the scooter up and tuck it under your desk once you get to class. Its premium lithium-ion battery gives it a max-range up to 18 miles, so it’s suitable for students who live just off-campus. The solid, no-flat tires are engineered to give you a smooth ride, absorbing shock whether you’re riding on roads or sidewalks.
The Quest can also help make your evening ride around campus more comfortable and safe. The scooter is equipped with an ultra-bright LED headlight and taillight which improves visibility and safety. You can shop the Jetson Quest Electric Scooter and more electric scooters to help you get around campus at Best Buy.
Ride On-Campus Buses/Shuttles
Many colleges have on-campus buses or shuttles that run regular routes around the campus. Bus fares are either complementary or reduced for students who show a student ID. Some college buses even have stops at popular off-campus shopping areas.
While there might be slight delays to their schedules, on-campus college shuttles are a convenient way to get around campus – especially if you don’t want to be on your feet. Check your college’s Student Center to see if your college has a student shuttle and pick-up a schedule.
If your college doesn’t have a shuttle service, check the public bus schedules which usually provide service to college areas.
If you don’t have a car or need a break from all the walking, hopefully, you’ll find these college transportation tips useful. They’re convenient alternatives if you don’t have a car and/or parking isn’t an option around your campus.
