Commute trip reduction
- This state-sponsored program is designed to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles on the road, in an effort to cut air pollution, traffic, and wear on the roads.
- EWU and WSU faculty and staff who register as CTR participants may receive a reduction in their parking pass. On the Riverpoint Campus, the CTR program includes a guaranteed ride home in the case of emergencies.
- The CTR committee tries to reward the great participants of the CTR program by holding a monthly drawing. We enter countywide events to give you an opportunity for prizes like DVD players and hotel stays.
- Commute Finder NW: Are you looking for a carpool or van pool partner? This site will also connect you with bike riding/walking partners and bus info.

- You can also find a carpooling partner for a single trip or many on our private social network for ridesharing, Zimride (see below).
Zimride Rideshare Network
- Zimride is a fun and easy way to share the seats in your car or catch a ride. With Zimride, you can find WSU friends, classmates, and coworkers going the same way you are.
- WSU Zimride helps you offer or request rides for commutes, road trips, and popular events. If you have a car, split costs by offering rides. If you don't have a car, find rides where you need to go.
- WSU Zimride requires a wsu.edu email address. You can also sign in using your Facebook account if you are part of the WSU network.
- Connect with WSU Zimride.
Bicycling and walking
- The Riverpoint Campus enjoys a wonderful location along the Centennial Trail, which starts at Riverside State Park and continues on to Post Falls. This trail is great for bicycling, walking, or in-line skating. So enjoy the trail even on the weekends with a parking pass, or use the meters in the green parking lots.
- Bike racks: north east of the Academic Center; inside Phase I, Academic Center, and Health Sciences building (look in loading docks).
