Hey, I was wondering if it's possible to live in Billings without a car?

How far of a walk from the Montana State campus is a grocery store, and Wal Mart?

Can I get by walking everywhere? How big of a town is Billings?

Thanks

Billings is a town of sprawl, with fast traffic and lots of strip malls. It is not pedestrian or bike friendly.

"How far of a walk from the Montana State campus is a grocery store, and Wal Mart?"

It is just over 4 miles from the MSU Billings campus to the WalMart on King Ave.
There is an Albertson's supermarket about a mile down N 27th street from the MSU Billings campus.

If you can live on campus, you can walk to classes and the Albertson's for groceries.

If you go to maps.google.com and enter MSU Billlings as your starting point and then your destination, it will give you the distance in miles and a route.

Here also are the bus routes for the city of Billings.

Hope that helps.

H.I.

There is a reasonable bus system in Billings, to solve part of your problem.

If you have a disability, they do have paratransit in Billings.

Montana is very difficult to live in if you don't drive or have a car. This is not DC, that is for sure.if you google "walkability" you can get a walkability map of any address, that will tell you how easy it is to live at an address without a car.
