Cool news from Portland State: A minority of students and faculty now drive alone to campus.

Look how students are getting to campus:


According to the school, the rate of students and employees driving to school alone is now half of what it was 10 years ago. How'd they make the change? Investment, investment, investment, both on the part of the university and TriMet:

• More than 2,000 bicycle parking spots, including indoor spots in two new bike garages
• A new on-campus bike repair shop called the PSU Bike Hub
• Discounted student and employee transit passes
• The new MAX Green Line train to PSU, which makes the campus a hub for transit
