Abstract

A civic engagement project to increase awareness and usage of public transit was undertaken at Western Oregon University to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions from fossil fuels and demonstrate the public policy process at a local scale. The policy objective included a two-fold focus of promoting the schedule and fares of the available public transit and establishing a partnership between the university and transit company to create a bus pass sale program on campus. The policy goals were carried out through the use of promotional venues on the WOU campus and a proposal to the Business Office to initiate the sale of bus passes. Project outcomes serve to illustrate key policy process steps including identifying stakeholders, working in cross-jurisdictional environments, and using limited resources to achieve the most significant change.
