PSU Bike Hub supports bicycle commuting
The PSU Bike Hub is an on-campus bike shop where students and staff can repair their own bikes, learn maintenance skills, and purchase parts & accessories at a discount. http://www.pdx.edu/bikehub/

The most recent data available for students are from fall 2012. The Campus Planning Office distributes an annual survey regarding commuting choices and preferences.

“Dropped Off” (2.68%) and “Other” (1.10%) included in sustainable options, but not included in Carpool/Vanpool.

Percentages represent number of trips taken in each mode by students, not % students taking each mode. PSU believes that surveying about trips by mode during a week is more accurate, as it reflects the possibility of using multiple modes.
