Parking Credits Now Offered as Incentives
We will begin offering Passport Parking App credits to be used toward daily permit purchase for those who participate in our Incentive program, Get There. Your first 5 days of commuting to campus by bike/foot/bus earns $10 in parking credit.
Free Carpool Parking
Sharing a ride with a friend, co-worker, or neighbor can save wear and tear on your vehicle, reduce emissions, cut your gas costs, and we'll give you free VIP parking. To apply for a free carpool parking permit, complete this form and upload with your permit application at osucascadespermits.cmrpay.com. Carpool permits are issued for those who can carpool for the majority of their car trips to campus.
Interested in sharing a ride with other students, staff or faculty, but don't know anyone that lives near you? Create an account at Get There. Get There is an easy-to-use carpool matching tool and trip planner that facilitates communication over a secure network.
