Towncenter Xpress Shuttle Service Expanded

Article by: Janet Paulson

Due to increased student demand, Clackamas Community College is adding a second free shuttle bus during peak hours from the end of the MAX Green Line at Clackamas Town Center to Clackamas Community College's Oregon City campus.

The new schedule is effective immediately. With the support of a $30,000 TriMet grant, CCC provides free shuttle service eight hours a day, Monday through Thursday and on Friday mornings. Service is offered during the academic year, but not during breaks. During the first week of classes, the shuttle was full at peak times, and some students were turned away and given bus passes. CCC solicited a bid to add another shuttle during high-use times in mornings and afternoons.

CCC will continue to monitor ridership and will adjust shuttle schedules based on student needs.

Bus transportation from the Town Center to CCC in Oregon City can take up to two hours. The shuttle is able to transport students between the two locations in 20-25 minutes, providing a significant benefit to students who rely on public transportation between the Town Center and the Oregon City campus.

Riders meet the Towncenter Xpress shuttle bus in the parking lot under the MAX Green Line stop. At CCC, the bus meets riders near the bus turnaround at the main entrance of the college. The schedule is posted on the CCCwebsite.

The service is open to the public and there is no cost for passengers.
