Public transportation in Stephenville is limited. Students in the past have relied on bicycles and/or their own two feet to get around. Obviously, this makes living on or close to campus essential if you wish to do anything in an efficient manner.
For those who may decided to ride a bicycle, please be careful when riding around Stephenville, as motororists are not always aware of bicyclists or pedestrians. Below you will find a list of the public transportation options available for your use.
City and Rural Rides (C.A.R.R.)
C.A.R.R. is a government-subsidized transportation service in Stephenville. You can call for a ride anywhere in the Stephenville area, and it will cost you $1.00 each way. Our students have been using the service since Spring 2008 and we've been hearing good things. CARR only runs Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm, and they recommend that you schedule rides a day in advance.
During the semester, the International Office will provide a shuttle every other week to take students to Wal-Mart and other shopping areas. Emails will be sent out to inform students of the days and times the shuttle will be operating.
