Commuting

When you’re budgeting for college, you’ll want to take the cost of commuting to campus into consideration. Remember, if money’s tight, there are several options that can help you keep commuting costs in check (and help protect the environment, too!).

Consider Taking Online Classes

Did you know we offer more than 200 distance learning courses through Dallas Colleges Online? Online classes aren’t the right fit for every student, but if they work for you, they can definitely cut your commuting costs.

Try Public Transportation

If you’re looking for an alternative to driving, why not give public transportation a try? Taking the bus or train offers a number of benefits.

Check Out Carpooling or Vanpooling Options

If public transportation isn’t a viable option for you, carpooling to work or class may be a solution. sharing the cost of commuting (and zipping down hov lanes) means everybody wins.
