Connector Replacement Project: New West Salem Service

The West Salem Connector is no longer in operation. Instead, Cherriots is operating regular bus service in West Salem. We've developed a plan with two new regular routes (26 and 27) and two adjusted regular routes (16 and 17) to better serve the area. See below for details on each of these routes.

ROUTE 16 DETAILS

Route 16 has been rerouted and extended. When heading north on Wallace, the Route 16 bus now takes a left on Orchardview, a right on Linwood, a left on Riverbend, a right on Wintergreen, a left on Brush College, a left on Doaks Ferry, a left on Orchard Heights, and a right to get back onto Wallace.

The Wallace Road Park and Ride is still active. However, riders will now walk two to three minutes to the reestablished bus stop at Brush College @ Wintergreen. We have installed a new shelter at this stop.

Wallace @ Tabyin (Outbound) has been replaced with Wallace @ Glen Creek Stop. The new bus stop has been established just south of the current stop. Additionally, an inbound stop has been established at Wallace @ Glen Creek across the street. This will help riders of Route 16 get to all the businesses in this area.
