Ride Share is a new program offered by PCC to encourage students who would normally drive separately to ride to campus together.
How do I get a Ride Share Permit?
If two students or employees are going to be riding to campus together, they can go to Student Account Services with each of their vehicles’ information, and each studentor employee will be billed $20 for the shared use of one permit.
Does Ride Share save me money?
Yes! In addition to the savings in gas you will both be getting, the combined total of the Ride Share permit is $40 – $10 less than a regular student permit.
What if I don’t know anyone who wants to share a ride?
PCC has partnered with METRO, the state of Oregon, and the state of Washington to offer a new transportation matching system called Drive Less Connect that lets you find other PCC goers with similar routes and times! Keep reading for more info.
