Yes, it’s true, in Florida Disney does provide free bus transportation for CPs from the housing complexes to the WDW property work locations. You can even download the app (TranLoc) to track the bus that you are hoping to catch.
BUT, it comes with a price!
The buses can make you late to work by running late or not showing up at all. At least once a month, a Transtar bus is involved in an accident. Just this year, two more Transtar buses have caught fire!
And this bus caught fire last year going to DAK: DCP Bus on Fire Near DAK

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale
by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins
Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
