Starting on 3/26/20 (Thursday) the Mt Hood Express will be reducing bus service to the Mt Hood area. The Governor’s Executive Order has asked for closure of all public parks and ski areas so the Express service will no longer stop at Ski Bowl West or Timberline Lodge. In addition, the Express bus will be reducing service to three trips daily between the City of Sandy and Government Camp. We want to make sure essential employees, the elderly, and persons with disabilities are able to access public transportation for their critical needs (jobs, groceries, medical appointments, pharmacy, etc.).
The Village Shuttle will continue to run on schedule four times daily seven days per week. We are able to deviate the Village shuttle to pick you up at a stop that is not on the route as long as it is accessible to our bus and is within a half mile of the regular route. If you need the Villages shuttle to deviate to pick you up, please call the Dispatch office at 503-668-3466 the day before and put in your request. We are limited to one deviation per route but we may be able to make exceptions for seniors and persons with disabilities who have critical needs. We are still able to make requested stops along our regular route and will pick up people along our regular route who flag the Villages Shuttle down.
Please limit your travel to essential trips and maintain social distancing (at least six feet apart). Our routes will continue to be fare free during this time. All of these changes are temporary and in response to the COVID 19 crisis. We hope to resume service in the near future.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. Again, to request a route deviation or if you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at 503-668-3466.
Please check DoubleMap for current updates or contact dispatch at 503-668-3466.
