A brief description of the bicycle sharing program:

OSU Transportation Services runs a bike loan program with low cost bikes to OSU affiliates for quarter-long use.

OSU-Cascades has partnered with Zagster to provide a bike share program for all students, staff, and faculty at OSU-Cascades. OSU-Cascades’ Bike Share program provides a convenient alternative to driving, limits single-occupancy vehicle use for short trips, and facilitates a healthy lifestyle for the campus.
