August 20, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State students, faculty and staff can find out all they need to know about getting around campus and town — and enter to win some great prizes — at the second annual Transportation Fair, hosted by Penn State Transportation Services, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, on the HUB lawn at University Park.

Transportation Services staff, as well as staff from partner organizations, will be on hand to share information on campus parking, biking, transit, bus and shuttle services, car and ride sharing, Penn State Fleet vehicle rentals, and more.

Visitors can enjoy fresh-baked treats from the Penn State Bakery as they browse the fair. And early birds will get an extra treat: The first 24 visitors will receive a gift card from Campus Dining or Jamba Juice.

Each visitor will receive a card that can be punched at six tables: Parking, CATA/Campus Shuttle, Enterprise CarShare/Zimride, Biking, University Police, Fleet, and Student Employment. Each punch equals an entry into a drawing featuring these prizes:

  •  One month of free parking.
  • $50 Whiskers (Nittany Lion Inn) and Legends (The Penn Stater) gift cards.
  • Tickets to see the Chainsmokers perform at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sept. 29.
  • CATA bus token rolls.
  • Zagster bike share memberships.
  • $25 Barnes & Noble gift card.
  • Campus Dining theme dinner tickets.
  • Edge Coffee Bar prize packs.
  • Starbucks gift basket.
  • Penn State Bakery cookie tins.

Fair visitors can receive bonus entries by following Transportation Services on Facebook and Twitter.  

The Transportation Fair also will feature informational tables where students can learn about employment opportunities with Transportation Services and event sponsors. 

The fair is sponsored by the Bryce Jordan Center, CATA, Edge Coffee Bar, Jamba Juice, the Penn State Bakery, Penn State Hospitality Services, Campus Dining, Pepsi, and Starbucks.

In the event of rain, the Transportation Fair will be held Friday, Aug. 30.
