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