Walk, Bike and Bus

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, the residential (long-term) parking lot, and Graduate & Research Center. OSU-Cascades is working with partners to launch a new transit service in October 2018 to connect OSU-Cascades to Central Oregon Community College and other destinations within the west side of Bend. 

Share Rides, Bikes and Cars

We have options for sharing rides, bikes and cars to save you money and reduce our collective impact on the environment.
 
Bike Share
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. 
 
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 get a free carpool parking permit, email us. 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? Email us with your origin, destination, and travel times and we'll pair you up with others along the same route. No commitment required, we're just glad to introduce you to others in your neighborhood that also want to carpool.
