Imagine going around town in your car and running out of gas. Now imagine riding on a bus so that does not happen.
You can use the Raider Regional Transit, which serves the university and the outlying community.
Students with a valid SU I.D. can ride for free. Those without an SU I.D. must pay $1.25 for a one-way trip.
The transit runs Monday through Saturday during the normal academic year and Tuesday and Thursday on breaks. The transit has three different routes: Red, blue and white.
You can use these lines to travel around town and ride back to campus. Each line goes to select locations around town including residences, shops and more.
You should go to ship.edu/rrt to find locations for each line.
Some of the places you can ride to include Walmart, Turkey Hill and Giant.
You may also use the buses to get back to your apartment or dorm.
Students who wish to use the transit should look for the bus stop signs around campus and town.
If you are low on supplies or just want to get off campus for a bit, maybe the transit is the best choice. Big Red’s Snack Shack only sells so many things so it may be best to look at one of the stores around town.
Once you are finished with your errands, find the nearest bus stop indicating your wish to return to campus.
If you choose to drive instead of using the buses, possibly consider carpooling with a friend to save gas money.
Wherever you may need to go, the Raider Regional Transit is reliable transportation for students and others who need a ride.
