All of these factors can drastically impact your transportation budget.
Where are a college is located can also have a big effect on transportation costs. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, getting around in an urban area could be pricey, but cities may offer more buses, trains and low-cost flight options to actually get to school.
