OSU-Cascades and the Associated Students of Cascades Campus (ASCC) are working together to provide free bus passes and transit enhancements. Two CET bus routes serve the campus, and Graduate & Research Center. OSU-Cascades is also working with local partners to offer Ride Bend, an on-demand, app-based transit service available at no cost to riders through March 2020.
A shared fleet of bicycles make it easy to get around campus and the city without a car. Downtown, the Old Mill District, and other popular destinations are only 10-minutes away by bike. Students and employees get free membership at zagster.com/osucascades when signing up with your university email address. Hourly, monthly, and annual memberships are available to the public.
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 save you money on parking. To get a free carpool parking permit, email Parking Services or call 541-322-2036. Carpool permits are issued for those who carpool daily or on a casual (occasional) basis.
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.
Uber and Lyft provide ride hailing services in Bend and throughout Central Oregon.
