In response to local requests for service, Cherriots will begin operating what’s being dubbed the Wilsonville-Keizer Express route, Sept. 6.
Route 80X will be a weekday-only service that will begin at the Keizer Transit Center, stop at the Woodburn Memorial Transit Center, and then turn around at the Wilsonville Transit Center before making the same stops on the return trip.
The new route will make four round-trips per day during the week, and during the month of September, Route 80X will be free to all. While connections from Keizer Transit Station into Salem and the surrounding area will remain the same, Cherriots will coordinate with the SMART Transit system in Wilsonville in order to minimize delays going from carrier-to-carrier.
The Woodburn Memorial Park and Ride facility already hosts two other transit providers, The City of Woodburn Transit system and the Cascades Point bus service, providing commuters with connections to downtown Woodburn, Tualatin and Portland.
Route 80X arrivals in Woodburn will be timed to coincide with the local SMART routes as well as the TriMet WES trains serving Tigard and Beaverton. Complete schedules and routes can be found at cherriots.org/changes.
