REDUCE YOUR GHG EMISSIONS BY RIDING THE BUS
January 7, 2014
Lane employees can get a bus pass at a reduced rate by registering for a credit class on Main or Downtown Campus. By signing up for the Fitness Education Center (CRN 30464), Lane employees pay $77 in fees, get a bus pass, AND a gym membership. This is a $200+ value for just $77. Taking the bus saves gas, greenhouse gas emissions, and money. Riding the bus may take more time than driving, but bus riders can use that time to read a book, catch up with friends on Facebook, or even grade papers.
