Transportation and Parking Services

1812 SW 6th Ave, in the Academic & Student Recreation Center (ASRC)

Whether you travel by bike, bus, car, train, skateboard or your own two legs, our mission is the same: Get you where you need to go on campus in the most efficient, affordable, and sustainable manner possible.

PSU has three light-rail lines, two streetcar lines and over 20 bus routes converging on campus, so it should come as no surprise that public transit is the most popular and convenient option for students. Our Student Viking Pass, allows full use of the TriMet system at a 50% discount. Many students also qualify for TriMet's Reduced Fare program, which provides an even better 72% discount. Contact our office for information about signing up!

PSU is also an award-winning bicycle friendly campus. Bicycle racks are available outside all buildings on campus as a convenient, short-term parking option. PSU also provides a variety of indoor bike parking facilities, which allow you to park your bike in a space that’s safe and dry. Best of all, you can keep your bike running smoothly with a visit to the PSU Bike Hub, an on-campus bike shop at the Student Rec Center. Students can rent or buy a bike, drop off a bike for professional repair or learn to service it themselves, and receive discounts on a wide selection of merchandise.

Need a car once in a while, but don't want the hassle of bringing one with you? Zipcar, Portland’s largest carsharing company, has over 20 vehicles available in the university district. PSU students and employees can join this service at a discount.

Parking on campus is very limited. For those who need to drive to campus, a variety of parking permits are available by the academic term and the academic year. Parking permits should be purchased in advance, prior to the term start, as they frequently sell out. Permits can be purchased online at pdx.edu/transportation approximately 4 weeks before the start of each term. Permits purchased online are sent by mail or held at will call. Daily and hourly parking is also available for those who prefer to drive infrequently.

If you have any questions, please call Transportation & Parking Services at 503-725-3442 or visit www.pdx.edu/transportation
