From walking and biking to Zipcar and SunRail, Rollins students have a number of on- and off-campus transportation options.
Launched in 2009, Rollins’ borrow-a-bike program has grown to include nearly 50 bicycles. Rollins students, faculty, and staff can check out a bike for free from the Olin Library circulation desk for three days at a time. Each bike comes with a lock, and patrons can even check out helmets and lights.
Want to see a show at the all-new Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center or cheer on the Magic at the Amway Center? Thanks to SunRail, downtown Orlando's myriad entertainment options are just a 15-minute train ride away. The Winter Park station on Central Florida’s new commuter rail line is located less than half a mile from campus, and a round-trip fare from Winter Park to downtown costs less than $4.
Rollins’ Office of Student Involvement and Leadership provides a shuttle to the Winter Park Village on Friday evenings. The shuttle runs to and from campus until midnight and gives students access to the Winter Park Village’s grocery store, movie theater, restaurants, and shops.
With its picturesque lakeside location, impeccably groomed paths, and compact size, Rollins is one of the most walkable campuses in the country. And thanks to Rollins’ immediate proximity to downtown Winter Park, your bipedal pursuits extend beyond the confines of America’s most beautiful college campus. Park Avenue, the city’s cultural epicenter, converges with campus, so first-class shopping and dining are just a stroll away.
From parking problems to mechanical meltdowns, owning a car in college offers plenty of headaches. Zipcar’s car-sharing service at Rollins offers the convenience of owning a car without any of the hassle. Rollins students, faculty, and staff age 18 and older have 24/7 access to a pair of vehicles parked right on campus. It’s easy—you can reserve a car online or by phone—and affordable—rates start at about $8 an hour or $70 a day and include gas, insurance, and maintenance.
