Travelling To College in September 2018

The first week of college can be very stressful. It’s fun and everything but you’re really thrown for a loop. You have to learn a whole new campus, get along with people you’ve only known for about two seconds and then pretend like you know what the hell you’re doing as you waddle into your first college class ever. But through all the madness, we can make one thing easier, your transport!


Check out below for all of our details for when our college services start. Have a great year everyone – don’t have too much fun!
