Walk, run, bike, or ride, Eugene offers a variety of choices to explore the Emerald City! Thanks to a large system of trails, bike lanes, and public transit routes, you’ll find a community that supports alternative modes of transportation and opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.
Eugene rightfully earns its nickname, Emerald City thanks to its numerous green parks and its proximity to three national forests – Willamette, Umpqua and Siuslaw. Within an hour drive in any direction, you'll find yourself surrounded by forest trees, waterfalls, and trails to explore Oregon's beauty. Drive two hours west and go for a walk on Pacific Coast sand in Florence or drive two hours north to hit the pavement in downtown Portland.
Getting here is easy, too! You can fly into the Eugene Airport or Portland International (about a two-hour drive). Amtrak provides services to Eugene and there are also other bus options.
If you’re a credit student or taking ABSE/GED classes at Lane, your transportation fee includes a Lane Transit bus pass. Lane Transit serves routes across Lane County. Visit the LCC Bus Pass information page to find out about how to get your bus pass and more.
Lane Community College has partnered with DriveLessConnect to make sharing rides for drivers and passengers fun and easy. In seconds you can set up a profile, search for open seats, or post a ride of your own. With DriveLessConnect, you can ensure an enjoyable ride.
