Commuter Connection

Welcome to the Commuter Connection — a useful resource guide for students living off campus.  

Carpooling and Public Transportation 
Need a ride?  Willing to give a ride?  Want to save on gas?  There are many opportunities for carpooling on a daily basis and for weekend trips.  There is public transportation available to and from our campus. Located, outside of the CSA office is a Commuter Connection Board with tips for commuters, and a place to post and find rides. You can also use one of the links below to obtain carpool connections that are available in the area.
