Purpose of the Program: The Walker/Biker Program is a project initiated by Seattle University’s department of Public Safety and Transportation in order to encourage the use of environmentally conscious ways of commuting to and from campus. Seattle University employees who are willing and able to walk or bike to work a majority of the time are provided limited amounts of affordable parking on campus as we look to become more environmentally friendly.
The program also provides showering facilities for the convenience of employees, and the option to use a locker by inquiring with the Student Center on campus.
Terms and Conditions: The following terms and conditions are applicable to all participants in the program, regardless of the method of transportation they use:
Notice: All sales of Walker/Biker Program services are final. Parking passes and program payments are non-refundable.
