EWU is committed to providing sustainable transportation options for students, employees, and visitors travelling to and from campus. Whether by bus, walk, skateboard, bike, or carpool, EWU can easily be reached by methods that save money, decrease traffic, and reduce pollution.
Commute Trip Reduction Program: EWU Employees are highly encouraged to sign up for the Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) program. By using this program employees receive a free Spokane Transit Authority bus pass and can be connected with other carpooling commuters. In addition to these benefits you can track your alternative transportation use to see how much money you saved, pollution you prevented by not driving alone to campus, and be entered to win prizes!

Modes of Transportation

Go human powered: Biking, running, and walking are all cheap, healthy ways to get to campus. There are plenty of bike racks around campus and if you work up a sweat getting to campus, showers are located in the URC, PHASE, Patterson, and Hargreaves. If you want to bike part of the way to EWU, all STA buses are equipped with bike racks to carry your bike. For those interested in biking from Spokane, contact the Office of Sustainability about group commute rides.
Carpool: Share a ride with friends and co-workers to the EWU campus by carpooling. Find or organize a car pool that fits your schedule and you will help reduce traffic and improve local air quality. Contact EWU Parking and Transportation Services to learn more.
Electric Vehicles: EWU has four electric vehicle charging stations on campus. Two are located at the Visitors Center (VIS) and two are located by the Computing and Engineering Building (CEB). The Level 2 PowerPost EV charging stations supply 240V electicity and a hookup costs $1.25 per hour. This includes the cost to park and charge simultaneously.
