Sustainable Transportation

OSU-Cascades is leading the way! We’re making it easier for you to get to campus without your car. Plus, we’ll reward you when you choose to walk, bike, skate, bus or carpool to campus. Why? Because, we want to help you save money, reduce our campus impacts on the environment, and improve your health!

Walk, Bike and Bus

OSU-Cascades and the Associated Students of Cascades Campus are working together to provide free bus passes and transit enhancements. Three CET bus routes serve the new campus and regularly loop the new OSU-Cascades campus, the Columbia/Simpson off-site lot, Graduate & Research Center and COCC. Earn rewards through our incentive program each time you walk, bike, roll, bus or carpool. Watch for more details in September.
