Getting to school
and back can be a challenge for many University of Iowa students. When
driving isn’t possible, there are other alternatives.
Below is a listing. (Remember that sharing rides is a great option—if
someone else from your area has a University of Iowa student, taking
turns driving them to and from school helps reduce the number of trips
and can be a good way to get to know other University students.)
