Fall Semester Transportation & Parking Information

August 07, 2017

The Office of Transportation & Parking is dedicated to managing a shared resource and providing transportation alternatives to access the Lewis & Clark campus. Parking can be very limited at times during the week. To help alleviate congestion, Transportation & Parking user fees fund the Pioneer Express shuttle service and discounted Trimet transit passes for LC students and staff. Our department strongly encourages all community members to consider using alternative transportation to get to campus. Purchasing a parking permit does not guarantee you a parking space.

  • Pioneer Express: Modified service begins Friday, August 11 – Modified Pio Express schedule. Full weekday Pioneer Express service and weekend service begins on August 28. Weekend shuttle schedule along with other shuttle service information can be found on our Shuttle Service page.

  • Trimet Bus Pass: Trimet monthly bus passes are sold at a 75% discount for $25 per month. 10-pack single ride ticket books are also available for $6.25.

  • Carpool/Rideshare: All you need to know about carpooling to Lewis & Clark, including help in finding a carpool/rideshare partner can be found here.

  • Parking permits: Permits are now on sale for 2017-18. Parking permits will be required for all vehicles parked on campus beginning Tuesday, September 5.

To purchase your permit or bus pass please go to: Log in using your LC username and password. Day passes will be available online and from the parking lot kiosks beginning Tuesday, September 5.

If you only purchase day passes from the parking lot kiosk you must acquire a vehicle registration at: Parking an unregistered vehicle on campus is a violation of the Transportation & Parking Rules & Regulations. Unregistered vehicles will be cited. 

Again, parking on campus is a challenge during the school year. We have only 1,338 spaces available for over 2,500 students and approximately 700 full time faculty and staff. Purchasing a parking permit will not guarantee you a parking space. Consider using an alternative way to get to campus such as Trimet, Pioneer Express Shuttle, carpooling, biking, or walking.
