As most of you probably know, OHSU offers its employees and students an incentive for riding a bike to the campus: every 35th time riding to campus you will be rewarded for your green behavior with a $50 check for those WITHOUT a Tri-met pass, and a $25 check for those WITH a Tri-met pass. In theory this program reduces the already strained parking and bus system on the hill.
The problem is that I have found this program to be inept, so much so that it may not be much of an incentive at all. It seems that every completed card I submit there are problems, such as the check taking over three months to arrive, the check never arriving at all, the check being sent to an old address, receiving $25 when I should have received $50, and a negative attitude from the OHSU transportation department when I inquire about these problems. So to determine how profuse these problems are, I would like to hear from you so I can make recommendations at the next student council meeting.
e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post to this blog about any rants or raves you may have about the OHSU Bike Incentive Program. I really want to hear from you!
In all two-legged regards,
