OSU-Cascades has partnered with Zagster to provide a bike share program for all students, staff, and faculty at OSU-Cascades. Please visit www.zagster.com/osucascades to sign up for free membership and start riding today.

Bike helmets can be requested by emailing transportation@osucascades.edu at least 24 hours in advance of your ride.

Bicycles are located at the OSU-Cascades Campus, the Graduate & Research Center, and the Columbia/Simpson Parking Lot.
