Seattle has a number of bike sharing programs available to anybody to use (e.g., Spin, LimeBike, Ofo).
Any student may purchase a discounted quarterly ORCA Card with proof of enrollment from the Cashier's office. The current cost for the ORCA Card is available from the Fees page, but as of Summer 2017, students can purchase a $250 card for $125 each quarter.
Faculty and staff members may purchase an ORCA Card at a discounted rate. Exempt, classified, full-time faculty, and part-time faculty working at least 50 percent FTE for more than two consecutive quarters may obtain an ORCA Card for $51 and the TMP/CTR fee. Fees may be paid through a payroll deduction, and passes can be picked up from the Transportation Coordinator.
Hourly staff working less than 50 percent FTE, and part-time faculty working at least 50 percent FTE who have not worked more than two consecutive quarters at or above 50 percent FTE, may obtain either an ORCA Card or parking permit (but not both) by paying the TMP/CTR fee and ORCA Card fee or the parking fee respectively. The fee will need to be paid at the Cashier's Office. Before visiting the Cashier, a quarterly transportation application form must be completed at your campus department to verify your percentage of employment.
Seattle Colleges participates in the Commute Trip Reduction program with the city. Employers reimburse employees up to 2xs/quarter, up to 60 miles from work in a taxi according to specific emergency criteria.
Discounted carpool permits are available for both students and employees. To participate, two or more individuals must commute together for at least 50 percent of the carpool's longest individual commute distance. Students must present their class schedules when applying for the carpool program, to demonstrate that they are on campus together at least 3 times per week.
Employees may carpool with a partner whose destination is away from the campus. Carpool routes must meet a standard of reasonableness determined by the campus Transportation Coordinator. Special carpool parking is provided for those with carpool permits. The carpool permits can be obtained from the Transportation Coordinator during the first 2 weeks of each quarter

Seattle College District Policy
Adopted Date: 10/13/2016
Seattle College District supports the concept of telecommuting and encourages the practice when it does not detract from the efficient and effective delivery of services to the colleges. The District recognizes the benefits of telecommuting, which includes increased productivity and morale, decreased traffic congestion, energy use, and parking problems. College and/or District administration will be responsible for the approval of all telecommuting agreements. Requests to telecommute as a disability accommodation are handled separately through the disability accommodation process.
The summer quarter the college closes early on Fridays to conserve energy and some departments support modified work schedules.
Seattle Colleges subscribes to the zimride ride sharing program.
