With the passage of Oregon House Bill 2017 (HB 2017), Cherriots will be getting more resources in 2019 to provide a major expansion in service and address other longstanding needs. We have proposals for service changes in September 2018 and 2019. Read a summary of the proposal below or review the full proposal at Cherriots.org/better, then make your voice heard using this form.
Phase I - September 2018
Transferring at Chemeketa Community College (CCC): A new bay on Satter Dr. and rerouting for Routes 3, 12, and 13.

Rerouting in SE Salem: Increasing Route 4 to 30-minute service, extending Route 11 to Marion County Correctional Facility, rerouting Route 7 to 25th, Madrona Avenue, and Fairview Industrial Drive, and eliminating Route 24.
