Supporting Sustainable Travel

Considering sustainable ways to travel to campus? We're here to help you find ways to leave your car at home and bike, carpool, bus, or roll (scooter/unicycle/OneWheel) to campus.

Transit

OSU-Cascades and the Associated Students of Cascades Campus (ASCC) provide free bus passes to enrolled students and employees. Your OSU ID card serves as a free bus pass for all Bend routes. Two CET bus routes serve the campus, and Graduate & Research Center.  

Share Rides, Bikes and Cars

We encourage sharing rides to save you money and reduce our collective impact on the environment.

Carpool

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 apply for a free carpool parking permit, complete this form and upload with your application for a permit 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.

Rideshare

Uber and Lyft provide ride hailing services in Bend and throughout Central Oregon. 

Bike Share

We're working together with the City of Bend to launch a new shared mobility option (shared scooters or bikes) for spring 2022.
