Movie-Media & Target-Giant Shuttles

Swarthmore's bookstore is well supplied, but it's not the place to go if you need to buy new underwear, a coffee maker, or chicken breasts (items that you'll probably need at some stage during your Swarthmore career). Thankfully, there is a Target in the Springfield Mall and a supermarket on Baltimore Pike not far from campus and a shuttle that goes there twice a week. This service is operated by students and is available every Sunday and Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Also, movie addicts or couples seeking an escapade can take advantage of the Movie-Media Shuttle to go to the nearby Marple AMC Movie Theater or downtown Media. The shuttle runs every Friday and Saturday and is operated by professional drivers (movie theater trips from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., downtown Media trips from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.).
