Cascades East Transit is launching a free summer shuttle on June 23 that will serve the greater downtown area through Labor Day. The City is a partner on the project.
Ride Bend, a pilot summer shuttle for Bend’s greater downtown area, rolls out June 23 through Labor Day. The goal of the route is to provide transit service for visitors and residents to connect between downtown Bend, the Old Mill District, as well as other popular destinations in Bend’s core area. The service is free to the public and is made possible by a joint partnership between City of Bend, Visit Bend, and Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council.
Riders may take Ride Bend between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m., seven days a week throughout the summer. Ride Bend will be offered free of charge and buses will run every 15 minutes, circulating in a clockwise loop between downtown Bend, the Old Mill District, OSU-Cascades campus, and Galveston Avenue. Dial-A-Ride service will be provided for ADA riders who are unable to use the fixed-route service. All buses and bus stops are ADA accessible.
