At Western Washington University we encourage everybody to use alternatives to driving alone to campus. Transportation Services supports active transportation by coordinating student and employee bus passes and by providing bicycling support and education, commute trip reduction information, and trip planning assistance. 

Driving less is a significant way to save money, reduce stress, increase your physical activity, and reduce your impact on the planet. Not sure how to get started? Contact transportation@wwu.edu today!
