RED Line: For Seniors and People With Disabilities
Getting around town is easy when you ride the RED Line dial-a-ride and shopper shuttle. And unlike CherryLift, no application is required!
The RED Line is for seniors 60 and over, and people with disabilities. Since all RED Line buses are ADA accessible, anyone with a disability or using a mobility device can ride.
The RED Line dial-a-ride picks you up at home and takes you to any destination in the Salem-Keizer urban growth boundary. Learn more about the dial-a-ride service.
The RED Line shopper shuttle picks you up and takes you shopping at designated store locations. Check the RED Line shopper shuttle map for your location and the schedule of stores. Learn more about the shopper shuttle service.

You can bring one additional passenger on the RED Line, regardless of his or her age. Your guest must pay the fare on both the RED Line dial-a-ride and shopper shuttle. You can also bring a personal care attendant. The personal care attendant must have the same pick-up and drop-off location as the passenger. An attendant on the dial-a-ride rides for free. An attendant on the shopper shuttle pays the $1.25 fare.
To make sure there is room for all passengers on the RED Line, there is a four bag maximum (bags must be no larger than a standard paper shopping bag). Personal care attendants can help carry bags, but cannot have an additional four bags. Drivers can only assist carrying bags to the door when there is no one else on the vehicle and they can see the vehicle at all times.
