TRANSIT CLOSED FOR MEMORIAL DAY ON MONDAY, MAY 30.
Woodburn Transit Service provides safe and reliable public transportation for people traveling within the Woodburn region. The system was built with a focus on those who do not have reliable transportation options, seniors, and people with disabilities; and strives to provide residents, visitors, and workers traveling to and from Woodburn with efficient and convenient regional transportation connections. Please join us in our commitment to a more sustainable Woodburn by taking the bus.
The City of Woodburn is one of only a handful of communities selected by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, part of Texas A&M University, to be included in their research for the US Department of Transportation about what makes a rural community a great place to live and how public transportation plays a role. Survey invitations will be coming in the mail soon to community residents. Participation in the survey is voluntary and confidential, but your opinion is important! Access the survey here. Have a question, comment, or concern? Please contact Jonathan Brooks at Texas A&M Transportation Institute at 1-713-613-9206 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Single Ride - $1.25
- 20 Ride Pass - $18.75

- 4 Ride Pass - $5.00

Woodburn Memorial Transit Facility (Park & Ride) Open!
The “Woodburn Memorial Transit Facility”, located off Evergreen Rd and Hwy 214, is now open and in service.
The Cascades POINT bus service, operated by MTR Western in partnership with ODOT, makes 2 daily northbound stops and 2 daily southbound stops at the new transit facility. Riders can buy tickets to go as far as Eugene to the south, and Portland to the north. Schedule and ticket information is available at the website and the Amtrak Cascades site.
Due to the need for timely and predictable service, the City re-routed the "Woodburn" fixed route bus to avoid the construction zone during the I-5 Interchange project. Once traffic conditions are deemed to be stable and predictable, we will resume service in this area and will implement a stop at the transit facility. The City is also actively involved in service coordination discussions with other transit providers to develop plans for regional transit service at the facility. We are hopeful that a partnership with SMART (City of Wilsonville) and Salem-Keizer Transit can be developed that will involve the Salem-Wilsonville Express bus serving the Woodburn Memorial Transit Facility. However, it is likely to be a few years before funding, timing, and capacity issues can be addressed in a manner that will allow that to happen.
We are also encouraging vanpool and car pool use of the facility. “Valley Vanpool” is a good resource for individuals in search of vanpooling opportunities, and “Drive Less Connect” is a good resource for carpooling opportunities. We are also working to develop partnerships with private shuttle operators (airport, casino, etc.) that would permit them to utilize the facility, as well.
The Woodburn Memorial Transit Center facility boasts plenty of parking for park & riders, maintaining:
- 133 parking spaces
- 29 compact parking spaces
- 6 wheelchair parking spaces
- 2 charging spaces
- 1 space for Woodburn Transit
- 1 space for the POINT bus
- 2 bus spaces
Stay tuned, as you should see service to the Woodburn Transit Center continue to expand over the next few years.
