I would be careful about having a car as a freshman. Its a new place and people will be your friend to use your car even if you are driving them. Wait a year or at lease a semester before you dive in that ocean.

There are really two main ways to get around campus: bus or bike. A&M is a large campus, so the buses are probably your best bet for getting around campus. The University has many buses, each with a distinct name and number. For example, bus 8 is "Howdy." Theses buses run every 15 minutes until 7 p.m., when they run every hour. The buses will take you practically anywhere you need to go on campus, and there are even buses that will take you off campus to places like H.E.B., the mall, skating rink, and some apartments. As for the fee, it’s included in your tuition. You also have the option of biking to class—almost everybody here has a bike, from mountain bikes to cool cruisers. The option is yours.
When it comes to getting around the city, it isn't that big, so there really isn’t any need for many taxis or buses, although they certainly do exist. Having a car is nice to get off campus to do shopping or having fun, but you can easily take a bus or hitch a ride with a friend, which is probably best so you don’t have to deal with the hassle of paying for a permit and trying to find somewhere to park. It might be a little inconvenient at times, but you can live without a car. The town is so small and the people are so nice that you’ll be able to figure out how to get where you need to go without too much hassle.
