Do you commute from the Lane County area to Corvallis? You’re invited to a Lane County Carpool/Vanpool informational meeting Friday, February 27th from 12-1 p.m. in the Memorial Union Journey Room 104 (2501 SW Jefferson Way). Free lunch will be provided!
This meeting is targeted to OSU students, staff, and faculty who live in Eugene / Springfield / the Lane County area and commute to the Corvallis campus. Employees of other Corvallis businesses and organizations who commute from Lane County are also invited. Come learn about how carpooling and vanpooling will help your wallet while helping the environment.
On average participating in a carpool or vanpool reduces the cost of your commute by half. An average commute to and from the Lane County area uses approximately 4 gallons of gas, so carpooling with only one other person can save approximately 1,000 gallons of gas or 18,000 pounds of CO2, in a single year. Join the OSU Sustainability Office and Cascades West Rideshare(a program of Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments) for lunch and we’ll provide information about how commuter carpools and vanpools work and some current vanpoolers will come to share their perspective. Don’t forget to check out our online carpooling tool Drive Less Connect
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on February, 25th so we can get a headcount for lunch and please include any dietary restrictions that you may have.. Feel free to spread the word.
If you can’t make the meeting, or are interested in carpool or vanpooling from somewhere besides Lane County, check out the OSU Transportation Options website for more information!
