Regional Transit System (RTS)
Buses are free to UF students with their student IDs and include campus circulators that visit "Park and Ride" and commuter lots as well as many campus buildings and Later Gator service downtown late on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The University pays RTS millions of dollars a year for all this service, and since it's coming from your tuition, you should make use of it!

Gainesville Regional Airport
It's almost completely useless. There's not enough room for a 747, so the only way to get here with an airline is to fly to Miami, Atlanta, or Charlotte, and connect to a prop plane flight for Gainesville (the same holds true in reverse-those cities are your only three destinations flying out of here). It tends to be quite expensive and, even though they are very large commuter planes, nerve-racking for those of us who prefer airborne accommodations the size of Rhode Island.
Jacksonville International Airport
JAX is about an hour and 45 minutes from the University of Florida.
14201 Pecan Park Rd., Jacksonville
