Transportation and Parking Services

Commuting to PCC campuses can present challenges to students, faculty, staff, the environment, and our neighbors. That’s why we offer alternatives to driving alone. Help us improve the livability of our community by riding transit, taking the PCC shuttle, biking, carpooling, or walking to PCC.

Parking Permits

Vehicles parked on a PCC campus or center must display a current parking permit on their rear view mirror or dash. Permits are required at PCC year round for all staffstudents, and visitors.

PCC Shuttle

The Shuttle is a free service to PCC students, faculty, and staff providing transportation between campuses, downtown (PSU) and select transit stops. Email for comments, questions or concerns regarding the shuttle service. Check monitors on campus to track our shuttles for arrival times and locations or visit:

Public Transit

PCC has cost saving programs in-place for students, faculty, and staff. Eligible students can purchase reduced TriMet term passes at Student Account Services. Eligible faculty and staff can purchase TriMet passes pre-tax via payroll deduction. TriMet tickets and monthly passes are also available for purchase at all campus bookstores. Subsidized 3 month TriMet passes can be purchased from the student accounts office the week before term begins. Check out the new TriMet Low Income Fares.  Call TPS at 971-722-8181 or visit the TriMet website.


Biking to work and/or school benefits your health, your wallet, and the environment. There are bike racks, locker rooms, and showers available at most campuses. Students at Cascade and Southeast can rent bikes through ASPCC.

Car Sharing

Car Sharing is a short-term car rental agreement where you pay by the hour and the rate includes your insurance and gas. If you drive a Car2Go or Zipcar to a PCC Campus, you will not need a parking permit. Car2go has a designated parking spot at Cascade, Sylvania and Southeast.

Ride Sharing

In addition to saving gas, carpoolers are eligible for a discounted parking permit.


2-wheeled motor vehicles park for free on PCC campuses in designated areas


Free, healthy, and carefree!
