The Shuttle Program

The ASWU Shuttle Program is an affordable and convenient way for students to get to PDX without having to pay for a more expensive 3rd-party shuttle service or a taxi.

Shuttles are available to and from PDX for Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, and leaving Willamette for Summer Break. Below you can find information on the shuttle schedules and communications. Ticket prices are determined by need. We subsidize the cost for students, so they should expect to pay in between $5-15 for the shuttle. Prices will be advertised in the sign-up e-mail.

Buses take students directly from campus to Portland International Airport and vice versa. The pick up/drop off spot at campus is the Chicken Fountain. The pick up spot at PDX is Island 2 to the far right.

Food Options when leaving:

Please contact catering@willamette.edu if you would like to have a boxed meal to pick up before your shuttle leaves or as you return. Please contact a minimum of 10 days in advance. You can use compass cash, cash or card for payment, meal points are not accepted during this time because it is during a break.
