Bicycles, Skateboards & Scooters:

If you ride a bike to school, you can park it in the bike rack located outside of the Tilden Arts Center. Please make sure to lock your bike as the school is not responsible for damage or theft while bikes are parked on campus. Skateboards, scooters, motorized skateboards, etc. are not allowed on campus. For safety reasons, none of these modes of transportation may be ridden or stood upon anywhere on campus.

Parking/Parking Permits:

All students are required to observe posted parking regulations.

Any vehicle parked in handicapped parking areas without a placard, or outside designated parking areas, is subject to ticketing and/or removal. Any student who fails to pay fines may be reported to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles and be subject to Registry imposed penalties. Students requiring temporary use of handicapped parking privileges must obtain permits from the O'Neill Center for Disability Services located in the MM Wilkens Hall, Room 222, x4337.  Carpool placards are available at the Student Life office.

Public Transportation:

Cape Cod Community College assists students, faculty, and staff who either experience transportation problems or find the cost of transportation exceedingly high. The efforts of the Student Life and Co-Curricular Office have centered on providing information and assistance on the following services:

The Commuter Program:

Cape Cod Community College has partnered with MassRIDES, the Commonwealth's Travel Options program, to encourgate healthier and more sustainable modes of travel among our students.  You can even earn rewards from MassRIDES when you choose to carpool, vanpool, bicycle, walk or ride transit instead of driving alone.  Carpool placards for designated parking in all of the parking lots are available from the Office of Student Life.

To participate, register for NuRide, the nation's largest commuter rewards program, and receive points each time you take a green trip.  You can also use NuRIDES's ridematching feature to find colleagues to form carpools to travel to school or work.
