Commuting Towards Your Future!

Commuter Services provides transportation resources to the campus community, including providing of parking permits, disability parking assistance, bicycle and pedestrian access, bus route information, U-Car use and carpool support. Our ultimate goal is reducing single-occupancy vehicle trips to the UW Bothell/Cascadia College campus.

We encourage students to park on‐campus or use alternative transportation methods. However, if you park off‐campus, we ask that you be courteous to and conscious of our UW Bothell community neighbors. This includes, but is not limited to, leaving room for residents to turn out of their driveways; not parking in front of fire hydrants or mailboxes; and taking all your trash with you. The cost of parking on campus is a consideration; however UW Bothell wants to be a good neighbor. For parking and transportation alternatives check out:
