Campus Sustainability Office
Does the institution offer free or reduced price transit passes and/or operate a free campus shuttle?:
A brief description of the program:
Transportation & Parking Services offers special discounted passes for students (FlexPass) and faculty/staff (Passport) thanks to a shared subsidy between Trimet and PSU.
PSU offers the Student FlexPass, a discounted All Zone TriMet Transit Pass valid on all TriMet buses, MAX, and Portland Streetcar for the current term. The FlexPass is available to all students registered for at least 3 credit hours during the current term. The per-term cost for the FlexPass is approximately 35% off TriMet's retail price!
Faculty and staff members may purchase a TriMet Passport (annual TriMet transit pass) at a significant savings and request the fee be deducted directly from their monthly pay. The Passport program consists of an all zone TriMet transit pass sticker.
A discount on C-TRAN passes is available for PSU employees.
