I have never rode on any of these transits, as I have my own car.
There is a public shuttle bus that runs from Tualitan Transit Center to the campus through a business area of Wilsonville, but this shuttle only runs daytime business hours (about 9-4). These hours conflict for many students because a great deal of courses are offered in the evening, some until later at night, and there is no other method of transportation beyond an expensive taxi ride home or carpooling.
The bus is available for free
The town is in walking distance, however, the campus is fairly isolated from the rest of Oregon, especially in the Winter
The City of Wilsonville has NO public transportation to and from OIT Wilsonville while classes are going on. There is simply no way to get to and from campus.
Oregon Tech Wilsonville has no campus security, and even locks students out of campus during class times late at night.
On the Oregon Tech website, OIT advertises a "safe campus." Like the majority of goodies and services, "campus safety" is solely for the Klamath Falls campus, and not for the Portland (now Wilsonville) campus. OIT Portland (now Wilsonville) has no campus security, no campus safety, no number to call, no shuttle bus, no women's resource center. This has been an ongoing situation for over thirty years, as that's how long OIT has maintained a Portland area campus.
Oregon Tech Wilsonville has no public transportation, but claims it's a "Green" and sustainable school, while 630 students drive a total of 940,000 miles per term.
Oregon Tech Wilsonville recommends students "bum a ride" with other students, who are mostly strange males. OIT does so in writing.
This is publicly available on the OIT student message boards, and functions as official policy for getting to campus.
OIT Wilsonville is therefore a hostile environment for women, people with disabilities, and anyone who doesn't have a vehicle that never, ever breaks down.
