The Furman campus is a convenient place to walk and bike. If you plan to be at Furman for awhile, you might consider buying a bicycle, helmet and lock–it's possible to buy all three for $100. University Square, which has a grocery store, a few restaurants and a barber shop, is a short ride from campus. By leaving through the gate of Furman by Timmons Arena and turning left, you will go up a hill and be at the shopping center. However, this road is sometimes busy with car traffic so please go during daylight hours, travel with a friend, and stay off of the pavement when possible to remain safe from cars.
The Furman shuttle travels to University Square on weeknights after 7 p.m. To arrange a place to meet the shuttle, call 313-7171.
The AFS student shuttle is available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings for travel to local destinations. To arrange a ride, call 238-0528.
The Greenlink shuttle runs Monday through Saturday and makes stops at Cherrydale Shopping Center, downtown Greenville, and the Transit Center, where you can connect to destinations like Haywood Mall. Download our tips for riding the Greenlink as a PDF.
