Connector Replacement Project

Thank you to those who participated in the survey. The outreach period has closed and we'll now be working on developing our final proposal. That proposal will be considered by the Board of Directors at the September 2017 Board meeting and the finalized plan will go into effect on January 2, 2018.

The West Salem Connector on-demand bus service has operated as a pilot project for the past two years. In April 2017, the Cherriots Board of Directors voted to end the pilot and directed staff to explore fixed-route alternatives. Staff’s goals are to create new routes that are more useful for more people and give riders more certainty about when they can expect the bus to arrive, while also maintaining coverage so riders don’t have to walk too far to get to the bus.

Proposal Highlights:

  • Route 16 would be rerouted to serve Brush College, Doaks Ferry, and Orchard Heights once an hour; continues to travel to the Downtown Transit Center
  • New Route 26 would be based out of Glen Creek Transit Center and travel down Glen Creek, Titan, and Orchard Heights once an hour
  • New Route 27 would also be based out of Glen Creek Transit Center and would travel down Glen Creek, Burley Hill, Eola, and through the Edgewater corridor once an hour
  • Schedules for Routes 16 and 26 would be offset to provide 30-minute service along Orchard Heights from Doaks Ferry to Wallace
  • Schedules for Routes 26 and 27 would be offset to provide 30-minute service along Glen Creek from Burley Hill to Wallace
