Whether you live on campus or not, getting around Gainesville and campus can sometimes be difficult, especially without a car.

Southwest Recreation Center is a lot farther from your dorm than it looks on the map. That’s when buses come in handy.

Students pay a transportation fee per credit hour, and they can use the bus system for free.

“It’s pre-paid unlimited access,” RTS Marketing and Communication Supervisor Chip Skinner said.

If you forgot your Gator 1 Card, you can still use the nine campus routes that RTS offers.

RTS also offers late-night service on the weekends with five Later Gator routes.

Another alternative is the Zipcar service. Gas and insurance are included with every reservation.

Gotcha Ride runs Thursday through Saturday from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. and travels through campus and nearby areas. Rides are free, but tips are appreciated.

Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol, or SNAP, is a free transport service that runs every night from 6:30 p.m. to 3 a.m. on campus.
