2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials
June 15 - June 29, 2021
The University of Oregon is pleased to host the Olympic Trials this year. Final transportation event planning is very dynamic due to ongoing changes of COVID protocol. This website will continue to post updated information if / when conditions change.
Transportation Services has a supporting role during the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. Primary event transportation and parking information will be available on the TrackTown USA website.
Eugene has hundreds of blue bicycles available for self-service rental from hubs throughout central Eugene, many of which are adjacent to free parking (Skinner's Butte, Lane Events Center, YMCA, Amazon Park). Leave your car far from campus, and ride right up to one of the many on-campus hubs close to Hayward. Download the PeaceHealth Rides app to get started.

Located on Agate Street at the northeast corner of Walton Hall, a free bike valet provides a convenient place to park your bicycle while attending the event. The bike valet operates on competition days and opens with the main spectactor gates and closes 30 minutes after the last daily competition.
Park your vehicle at Valley River Center (293 Valley River Center) and ride the free spectactor shuttle to the event. Shuttle operation times are available on the event website.
