The Mt. Hood and Gorge Park and Ride Assessment is a Portland State University MURP workshop led by graduate students in the Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program. This project aims to support the region's goals to increase access to nature, recreation, and outdoor space by evaluating transit needs and park-and-rides as an effective strategy. Please go here to complete the survey.
Clackamas County is now in the process of developing an integrated website for
several small transit providers in the county. The goal is to simplify the riding
experience for customers traveling between multiple transportation providers.

**MHX and SAM are currently transitioning our bus app to Passio Go! There will be a short period when buses cannot be tracked. We apologize for the inconvenience but we look forward to providing you with this new and improved feature!**
To better serve our riders, SAM and MHX are changing from the DoubleMap app to Passio Go!!
The mobile and web-friendly software will have all the features you currently enjoy including bus location, estimated time of arrival and stop information. In addition, riders will be able to set up customized alerts. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but we want to ensure that our passengers get the best experience. We will notify riders when we are ready to switch over and launch the new, improved program! Please visit https://passiogo.com/ or download the app (available for iPhone and Android) to learn more.
