The University of South Florida offers free rides to their students and faculty through their Bull Runner transit system. As long as you have a USF ID card, you’re welcome to ride the Bull Runner!
The Bull Runner also accommodates students with disabilities. All of the buses have a lift or a ramp to ensure that every student is able to ride. Also, on all regular routes, announcements and securement straps can be provided.
The best part of the Bull Runner is that the buses go off campus too. There are several bus routes, and depending on which bus you take, you can get a ride to the mall, or to a few apartment properties off campus. Just make sure you check out the Bull Runner schedule and routes before you hop on a bus. On usfbullrunner.com, you can get real time updates on bus locations and predicted arrival times! It’s important to note that not all bus routes run on the weekends.
Using the Bull Runner to get around will eliminate the need to spend money on gas, and you won’t have to worry about the expenses of car maintenance.
What do you guys think about the Bull Runner? Do you think it completely eliminates the need for a car?
