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. 

Need a little incentive? We'll feed you and help you get the gear you need to leave your car at home.

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.

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.  

Rideshare

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

Bike or Scooter Share

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