The cost of getting around in college can really vary. Will you take a subway, car or an airplane to get to school? Is on-campus parking free, or will you need to budget for parking?

All of these factors can make a big difference in your transportation budget. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
The location of a college or university can also have a big effect on your transportation budget. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher.
