News Release
Saturday Services on Route 99X and Dial A Ride - 07/22/19

On Saturday, September 7, 2019, Canby Area Transit (CAT) will kick off a new Saturday service on both the Route 99X and the Dial-A-Ride services. Based on the 2017 Transit Master Plan and the outcome of public outreach efforts in June of 2018 Saturday service was identified as the next priority for implementation.

The new Saturday services will be funded with transit funding created by Oregon House Bill 2017. The bill established a public transportation payroll tax that collects 1/10 of 1% tax on employee wages. The new funding source is referred to as the Statewide Transit Improvement Fund (STIF).

The City of Canby is seeking community input regarding the proposed Saturday services. We encourage everyone to attend a public meeting:

August 1, 2019

7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Canby Civic Center

Willamette Room (1st floor)

222 NE 2nd Avenue

Canby, OR 97013

The proposed Saturday service for the CAT Route 99X will operate between Oregon City and Woodburn via Canby between 8:00 am and 6:30 pm. The CAT Paratransit and General Public Dial-A-Ride program will operate within the Canby Urban Growth Boundary during the same hours. Paratransit service to Oregon City will be limited to TriMet LIFT transfers on Saturdays. More information including the proposed Route 99X schedule is available online at www.canbyareatransit.org and will be available in paper format on the buses and at the CAT office. If you would like to help distribute the proposed schedule and/or the meeting notice please contact us at 503.266.0751 or email cat@canbyoregon.gov.

English to Spanish interpretation is provided at all Transit Advisory Committee meetings and will be provided at the meeting on August 1, 2019.
