TriMet Grant Supports CCC’s Green Line Shuttle

 Clackamas Community College has been awarded a $30,000 grant from TriMet to support the Green Line Shuttle. The CCC Green Line Shuttle runs express service between the college’s main campus in Oregon City and the MAX Green Line terminus at Clackamas Town Center.

The CCC grant is part of $683,513 in federal Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) monies awarded by the transit agency to nonprofit and government programs that connect low-income residents to jobs and job-related services.

The CCC Green Line Shuttle provides free express service for students and the public week days during the academic terms. It has been a popular service for students that is full during rush hours.

Seventy-two percent of incoming CCC students receive financial aid; slightly over half of these students live below the federal poverty level and 42 percent work more than 20 hours a week. The shuttle service provides a direct trip that is not available on TriMet and connects the MAX infrastructure to the under served area around CCC’s Oregon City campus.

Shuttle service began on a trial basis in spring of 2010, through a partnership between the college, the Transportation Management Association, Clackamas County and Premiere Transportation. Towncenter Express (TX) proved successful with students, county employees and the public.

CCC has continued to fund the shuttle through a variety of grants and other funds. The annual cost of operation is $48,000. For more information, please contact Courtney Wilton, 503-594-3010 or courtneyw@clackamas.edu
