Life can be rough for a vehicle-deprived student.

If you were among the carless crowd in college, you may remember the drill: walking to the grocery store; begging for a ride to the mall; pooling gas money to convince a dormmate to chauffeur a beach day; worrying about getting stranded on campus on a Saturday night.

Well, now those days of begging and worrying are done (or less common, at least). Thanks to two new services, it’s become a whole lot easier for Biolans without cars to get where they want to go.


For longer drives, WeCar (a service of Enterprise Rent-a-Car) is the way to go. For $8 an hour or up to $64 a day, students can hop into either a Toyota Prius or Ford Focus and go anywhere in Southern California (or beyond). After signing up for a yearly member- ship, renting a car is as simple as (1) making an online reservation, (2) heading to the reserved WeCar park- ing spaces near the Biola Bookstore, (3) using a sensor-activating mem- bership card to unlock the car and (4) grabbing the keys out of the glove box.

The Biola Shuttle

Sleek and spacious, the new Biola Shuttle is a convenient way to get around town (and advertise Biola to other cars on the road). With the simple wave of a current Biola ID card, students can board at Horton Hall and ride to such prescheduled stops as local movie theaters, shop- ping centers, the Brea mall and Birch Street. The shuttle runs Thursdays through Sundays, from afternoon to late at night. And best of all, it’s free! (Check it out at
