RIDE: Where to get Zapped

Check out the map of all the ZAP readers on campus to plan your route. You can ride by as many times as you want (and you might want to - they emit a satisfying beep every time you ride by!) but you can only get credit for one ZAP per day.



REWARDS: Prizes and Challenges

First time riders

New to ZAP Oregon State? Ride to campus (make sure you collect a ZAP on your trip!), and you will automatically earn a prize just for trying it out. Prizes vary by season, but may include bike bells, patch kits, or other fun bike bling.
