Between candy-striped walls, Cat Davidson sets to work at The Eco Salon, where she treats clients to rejuvenating facial treatments. Maneuvering the high-tech Nu Skin Galvanic Spa System II, she can work to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by infusing skin with anti-aging unguents. Elsewhere in the salon, Cat's colleagues perform hair, nail, and skin treatments using ecoconscious products, such as ammonia-free hair color and plutonium-free nail polish.
Servicing the cycles of beginner and advanced riders alike, Collin's Cycle Shop coasts on its reputation of attentive customer service and mechanical excellence. The cycling-centric staff assists riders in finding a range of pedal-worthy products to complement their tour du jour. A variety of fenders ($50), indoor racks ($40), and car racks ($75) dot the brightly lit showroom alongside fixed-gear and multi-gear bike brands from manufacturers such as Giant, Redline, and Specialized. Helmets ($45+) and lights ($20–$145) ensure rider safety while U-locks ($45) protect bikes from floating away into the stratosphere. Cyclists enjoy free tune-ups with all new bike purchases, as wells as free lifetime truing on all custom-made wheels. Recognizing the varied goals and needs of every customer, Collin's Cycles offers customized bike fitting ($50–$300) for commuters, enthusiasts, and professional riders. A two-wheeling tech works with each rider during the fitting by installing ergonomically savvy combinations of handlebars, stems, and grips on the bike for optimal positioning and comfortable saddling of damsels in distress.
Epark Eugene's garages, lots, and street spots can comfortably house more than 3,000 automobiles as drivers spend time working or playing downtown.

Downtown Automotive Center's ASE-certified technicians diagnose and repair every sort of car system—be it airbags, environmental controls, or engines. As masters in their field, they have the confidence to back all of their repairs with a two-year or 24,000-mile warranty. They also perform tasks of simple maintenance, swapping out old oil for new and winterizing vehicles to resist the effects of frost or plowing through snowmen who refuse to leave the crosswalk. For extensive repairs, they provide clients with shuttle service to home or work while they patch up vehicles.
A fixture in the automotive industry since 1980, Clarke's Discount Inc.’s efficiency-boosting services and repairs helped earn the shop certifications from the Department of Energy and the Department of Environmental Quality. Inside each service bay, ASE-certified technicians swap in factory quality parts backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty. No matter the repair, Monday–Saturday hours do their best to accommodate busy schedules, while an early-bird and night-owl drop box cares for those who can't meet shop hours. Recognizing that some drivers prefer to fix things themselves, Clark's Discount Inc. also stocks a fully supplied repair shop flush with fluids, tools, and taped readings of the Kelley Blue Book.
Eugene Hybrid Taxi Cabs takes sustainability seriously. One of its vehicles has gone without any major repairs for more than 450,000 miles—on par with circling the Earth 18 times.

Combining a commitment to the environment with convenience, the staff dispatches taxis 24 hours of the day, whether you require a skilled chauffeur for an early-morning jaunt to the Eugene Airport or a late-night trip to the neighborhood tire fire.
