Rides Around Town

In addition to our on-campus services, we offer need-based services that require a little advanced planning. There are also services for travels that take you away from the areas that campus and local transit serve. 


On Campus

The Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) offers unique accommodations for students with accessibility needs. You will be provided with transportation to and from class on campus while classes are in session. 

The application process can take several weeks so take care of the registration as soon as possible.

Off Campus

The COMET’s DART (Dial A Ride Transit) service is available for those that have a disability and cannot ride regular COMET or USC Transit buses.

You must be preregistered before you can get access to the service, and it can take up to 21 days to determine eligibility.

Columbia to Charlotte Shuttle

Sometimes, air travel is the best way to go. You may have chosen to study abroad or, perhaps, you are heading home for a long-anticipated family visit. Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE) is a short journey from campus and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) is approximately 1 1/2 hours away. 

If you decide to fly Charlotte Douglas International Airport, take advantage of the Columbia Charlotte Shuttle. This service will take you to the Charlotte airport from any Columbia location. It will also deliver you to campus, or another Columbia location, from the airport. Please see the website for current pricing.

Holiday Shuttles

Holiday shuttles are offered via Student Government Association during Fall and Spring Breaks.

Columbia Public Transit Services

The COMET provides travel throughout the Columbia metropolitan area, operating seven days a week with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas days. Call (803) 255-7100 or visit The COMET's website for more information.
