There are a good number of bars and restaurants that are all friendly to students within walking distance of campus. Most of central PA is pretty spread out though, so if you want to get off campus (and you will!) get a car.

With regards to the shuttle to Harrisburg around school breaks: there is a shuttle that goes to the airport and to the Harrisburg train station. It usually runs every hour on the days before and after breaks, and costs $10 per ride. It is very reliable; I've taken it several times and have always been impressed with its timing and reliability. Never heard of it being late...

Transportation at Dickinson is a big issue to many students. Getting to Harrisburg, which houses the nearest airport and train station, is very difficult without a car, and since freshmen are not permitted to have vehicles on campus, the limits on transportation often feel stifling. Carlisle is a small town and doesn’t have any sort of public bus system, so if you need to go somewhere and do not have a car, you must walk or ride a bike. However, most businesses are within walking distance, including Wal-Mart, so while it may not be a short walk, it’s still possible.
The College does have a shuttle service that goes to and from the Harrisburg airport and train station in several shifts before and after semester breaks to transport students. The majority of upperclassmen, however, have their cars on campus, and it isn’t hard to find a ride somewhere. Additionally, the college has a “Virtual Ride Board” online where students can ask for and offer rides.
