Transportation Services is limiting term permit sales in affected zones to ensure that permit holders have a reasonable likelihood of finding a parking space during the event. Increased numbers of 30-day and single day permits will be made available up until the major impact dates for a zone. A waitlist for summer term permits in each zone will be maintained, and after the event pro-rated term permits will be made available to those on the waitlist. Example: a term permit for B-East purchased on July 28th will cost $92.
Dates for summer term permits are available on the renewal page.

Summary of impacts by zone
Eugene is welcoming the world, and the world is coming to Eugene. There will be significant impacts to traffic in the month of July and during the event. Transportation Services is encouraging people to consider the following options avoid the traffic:
Lane Transit District will be adding extra service on some routes during the event and park and rides will be open. University Students and Employees have access to a free bus pass. The pass is delivered through the Umo app, which also includes a trip planner that will tell you which bus to take and when you need to be at the stop. If you think you might take advantage of this option, sign up for your pass now so that you are ready to go in July.
The days are long and the weather in July is perfect for bicycling. Bicycle parking is available across campus, and it has never been easier to bicycle around Eugene. Students and Employees have access to discounted rates for PeaceHealth Rides, Eugene's bike share system. Even if you can't bicycle all the way from home, consider parking near a bike share station and biking the rest of the way.
Get There is the State of Oregon's official ride matching platform. You can post a regular commute schedule or a one-time trip. If you sign up with your University of Oregon email, you will automatically be added to the UO group and can limit matches to other university members. As a reminder, you can now add multiple vehicles to your commuter zone permit as long as only one vehicle per day comes to campus.
University of Oregon employees have access to the fan shuttle at the Valley River Center park-and-ride. Transportation Services has arranged for additional park-and-ride and park-and-walk lots for large on-site employee dependent departments, including CPFM and Housing. Check with your supervisor or manager for more information on these options.
Not all employees have the ability to work from home, but those that do save campus parking spaces for other employees that have to come to work.
