Park & Ride
UDASH has multiple lines that offer a Park & Ride shuttle service from the Dornblaser/Lewis and Clark parking lots and the Missoula College lot to Mountain Campus. If you purchase the $26.00 Park & Ride Pass, you can park at either the Dornblaser Park & Ride or the Missoula College Park & Ride to commute to Mountain Campus.
Please note that if you attend Missoula College, you are not allowed to purchase a Park & Ride pass. You must purchase a student/employee commuter pass, or use hourly/daily parking.
Benefits of using the Park & Ride:
- It's affordable!
- You can learn to use and get familiar with public transportation
- It reduces traffic and congestion
- It reduces air pollution and combats climate change
- Walkability and navigation around campus is safer
- You'll reach your destination free of stress! (No more worrying about getting there early enough to find a spot.)
