It's probably best you have a car if you're attending the Twin Cities campus. There is a very noticeable security presence (they will walk you to your car), as this isn't the nicest of neighborhoods. You could easily take the bus, but I'm not sure if I'd recommend it if you're getting out of class late (10pm).

Weekend Convenience – There is a bus called the Safe Ride that runs during the weekend on both Friday and Saturday night. It starts at 7pm and ends around 1 in the morning. It is convenient because it comes right on campus, it is free, and it is safe. It provides rides into town and prevents people from drunk driving because this is a free driving option for them to get back on campus.

Own/Friend's Car Is the Best Option – There is a bus that runs into town, but I've heard the schedule can be iffy-never used it myself though because I have my own car. Parking permit is $60 this year, which isn't bad. Van cabs are available, so getting a group together and going into town can be pretty cheap (again going off of what a friend told me).

SMU provides an on-campus shuttle that is lovingly referred to as the "drunk bus" to bring students around town during the day and some hours of the night. Otherwise, you're best bet is to bring your own car or have access to a friend's car. Taxi's are alright sometimes but tend to be pricey. Long distance travel back home is a mixed bag. The Amtrak train in town is consistently late and unreliable. Although I don't know much about Greyhound, Jefferson, or Megabus, it's safe to assume that a lot of students rarely use any of them. Most prefer to either hitch a ride from a friend back home, bring a car, or ask a friend to drive them to the airport to fly home. Bottom line, cars are your best option.

There is a taxi service but at specific times like 2 in the morning on a Friday night it is nearly impossible to get ahold of. The taxi costs $8 one way to get to Winona.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
