Clackamas Community College will offer shuttle service from the MAX Green Line to the Oregon City campus during the academic year, through the help of a modest transportation grant. The service will begin with the start of fall term and will run six hours a day, Monday through Thursday.
CCC partnered with the Transportation Management Association, Clackamas County and Premiere Transportation during the spring in 2010 to provide shuttle service from the MAX to Oregon City. Towncenter Express (TX) proved successful with students, county employees and the public.
“Many of our students live in the I-205 corridor, making the MAX a good transportation option. But the bus service to Oregon City isn’t direct and it takes a while to get here,” said Courtney Wilton, Vice President of College Services at CCC. “The shuttle provides a great service to students and the public as well.”
The college received a Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) grant from TriMet to fund a portion of the shuttle. The remainder of the cost will be shared by student fees and the college general fund.
Riders will meet the TX bus in the parking lot under the MAX Green Line stop. At CCC, the bus will meet riders near the bus turnaround at the front of the college. The schedule will be posted on the CCC website prior to the start of fall term.
