Alternate Transportation - Buses, Bikes, and Carpooling
Bus Service through Rogue Valley Transportation District (RVTD)
Service runs three times each hour (weekdays only). Fares: $2 between cities, $1 everywhere for those 62 and over. Discounted passes also available. www.rvtd.org
Shuttle Service through Cascade Shuttle
OLLI at SOU Ride-Share Program in Ashland: this is a subsidized ride-share pilot program for OLLI members, utilitzing Cascade Shuttle service in Ashland. OLLI members contact Cascade directly, and pay $4 per one-way fare (check or cash only). The shuttle van accommodates up to seven riders. Arrangements must be made by 5 p.m. the day before. If successful, the program will be expanded to Medford.
Bike racks are available in the following locations:
- Ashland Campus – next to Classroom C and the Members’ Lounge
- Medford Campus - On Ninth Street behind the Higher Education Center; behind RCC's G Building (8th and Central) in the parking lot; and city racks in the alley behind G Building and on the sidewalk next to G on 8th Street.
Carpooling makes good sense, especially for friends who take the same classes, particularly the large classes in Classrooms A, D, and E. There is a bulletin board in the Campbell Center Members’ Lounge where people can post “ride offered” or “ride needed” notices.
$130 carpooler parking permits that allow parking in SOU lots and are valid each academic year are sold in the SOU Enrollment Services Center. You have to be an enrolled student to be eligible to purchase one. For OLLI members, that means you have to be signed up for an SOU One Credit class and have a student ID.
