Biking aligns with OHSU's mission to improve community health and also eases traffic congestion--improving access for patients and anyone traveling by other means. Biking can also be a fun, healthy way to start your day at work or school.
Marquam Hill and South Waterfront offer unique commutes but are easily biked with the right planning.

Parking on campus
The OHSU Bike Valet is a fast, free and secure option welcome to all. The valet is operated by our contractor Go By Bike at the lower terminal of the Portland Aerial Tram. Open 6am to 6:45pm, Monday to Friday. Closed when the tram is closed.
Indoors and near entrances, walk bikes. Lock only to bike racks, keeping disabled ramps clear for those who need them.
Bike facilities, accessible 24/7, are detailed here. Anywhere but the valet, U-locks are strongly recommended. Cables alone will not protect a bike from theft.
