Students should talk themselves out of using a bus or cab for transportation. Overall, El Paso is not much of an urban city. It is not common to see taxi drivers transporting students or residents, and very few students take the bus, as it is a slow method of transportation. Most students take their own vehicles. Other students choose to carpool with friends. Some get dropped off and picked up by their friends or family. Students with residency near campus ride bicycles to school and use them to get around campus, as well. It is a popular trend that continues to grow, more than ever in the spring.
Shuttle transportation is available around campus to provide easier and more flexible transportation, without the issue of parking on campus. Shuttles are free and operate certain days and times.
