Clackamas County transportation planners are taking a first-ever look at countywide transit needs through creation of a Transit Development Plan. With seven organizations that provide local bus service in Clackamas County, there are still large areas of the county with no transit service, and existing service varies in frequency, access and connectivity.
The public is invited to weigh in with their perspective on transit needs by completing an online survey. The results will help the project team and transit companies plan a future with safe, accessible, convenient transit throughout Clackamas County.

The survey will be open through July 2, 2020. Survey participants will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card to a grocery store of their choosing.
This first-ever countywide transit development plan is being developed by the Clackamas County Department of Transportation & Development is working with the community, transit providers and partners. The final plan, expected by January 2021, will be used to guide transit investments in the county.
The plan is intended to help guide future investments in transit in the county in order to:
• Improve service in rural and suburban locations.
• Make fares and timing easier when riders transfer from one transit carrier to another.
• Bring new options such as shuttles, express services, vanpools, micro-transit, and transportation network companies such as Uber and Lyft.
• Make driving easier on state highways by reducing traffic from single-occupancy vehicles.
• Help support climate recovery.
