Faculty and staff members don’t have to go it alone. Join the experts at UO Transportation Day on Tuesday, Oct. 4, to learn about alternate modes of getting to and around campus other than just solo driving.
The annual event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the lawn between Condon and Chapman halls across East 13th Avenue from Lillis Hall.
The goal is to reduce the number of single drivers to campus and offer people better and more efficient solutions. Those include multimodal, where people drive part way and then get to their destination using another form of transportation, such as BikeShare or the bus.
“There have been significant changes to Eugene’s bike network and bus system over the past few years,” said Josh Kashinsky, active transportation coordinator. “Transportation Day is a great opportunity to connect directly with knowledgeable staff about those changes.”
Participants can get free bike tune-ups, pick up giveaways and try their luck at winning a raffle prize.
The Outdoor Program, Office of Sustainability, Transportation Services, Duck Rides and the Student Sustainability Center will showcase UO programs, while the Lane Council of Governments, Lane Transit District, city of Eugene and Cascadia Mobility will be offering materials and resources to aid in making transportation more accessible.
