Drive Less Connect: SOU campaign ran from 2014-15 helping SOU students explore Ashland, Medford, and beyond by walking, biking, skating, taking the bus, and sharing rides. Over 600 students recieved GoKits and information and resources on transportation options.

Do you want to carpool to class? Walk to work? Bus to the bar? We've got the resources to help you get moving.
Commuter Resource Center: No matter how you get to campus, the Commuter Resource Center has everything you need to make it through the school day. Check out their lounge, computer lab, kitchenette, nap area (with wake-up calls), and group study areas. You can even sign up for a free locker or use the fax/copy machine. Can’t make it to campus due to weather or a family emergency? There’s even a term-paper delivery service!
Carpool Parking: Carpooling doesn’t just save you money on gas and reduce the stress of driving, you can also save on parking costs with the SOU carpool parking permit. For carpools with 2-6 participants, permits cost about $135 per year.
