Most students can’t complain about the transportation on and around campus. Along with the Shuttle-UM service, Maryland has its own Metro station that offers train rides to a handful of locations throughout the Washington, D.C. and Maryland areas, giving students quick solutions to their transportation needs. Thanks to these two significant aspects of Maryland’s public transportation, happiness comes easy to students who don’t have access to a car on campus or simply don’t want to face the hassles of having a car while attending school. The impossible task of finding a parking spot is offset by convenient alternatives.
The Shuttle-UM runs practically 24/7 during the fall and spring semesters. If you have the patience, take a ride on a few of its routes to get a feel for the area. When the Shuttle-UM stops running in the early hours of the morning, UMD also provides Nite Ride, which serves as a campus taxi free to students.
