Repair Shops – Fix it right!
Car, scooter or bike, oh my! What if it breaks down, and you need a fix it shop? At UCF, you will find all in large numbers. Talk to any student about which is the most useful fix it places at UCF and you’re likely to get an equal number of answers. No matter the transportation your student is using, they may, at some point, need to repair it at a fix-it shop.
There is nothing worse than having your main mode of transportation break down. You might want to remind them that there is a great bus system right on campus, but prepare for the eye roll response. Below you will find a list of repair shops.
