Join 5-7 others in a van from Redmond or other communities outside of Bend. Reduce stress, save on auto and fuel costs, and reduce your environmental impacts. Interested? Great! Here’s how it works:
Our first route will departs from Redmond at approximately 7:20 a.m. and departs from the OSU Cascades campus at approximately 5 p.m.
Participants must contribute a monthly fee to ride in the van. The cost will depend on the number of passengers that sign up, but will be subsidized by OSU-Cascades to incentivize this sustainable commute option
Service will start as soon as we have 4-5 riders.
