Public transportation is not widely used in Tuscaloosa. Everything is mostly in walking distance, and since most students bring their own cars, there is not much need for other transportation. Off-campus residents can take advantage of the trolley system if they don't bring a car, which makes stops on and off campus. Also, the trolley goes down the Strip at night, so students have a ride home from the bars. If students are on campus at night and need a ride, 348-RIDE is the safest and fastest way to get you where you need to be. Although most students choose not to use the public transportation systems, they still believe they are conveniently located around town.
Getting around town is not a problem for UA students since all the basic needs are located on campus or on the Strip. However, if students do need to get around town, the trolley is their best bet. For rides around campus, 348-RIDE is convenient. If students don't have a car and need to travel beyond the trolley's route, then cabs are the most popular way to get around.
