News Release
CAT Service Expansion - 02/09/18

Interested community residents, business members, CAT drivers, and CAT customers are encouraged to attend a public meeting in the Council Chambers (222 NE 2nd Avenue; first floor) on February 22, 2018 at 5:30 pm. This meeting will kick off the public comment period which will end on March 7, 2018.

A draft schedule for the CAT Route 99 is available. These changes to the route are made in order accomplish Phase 0 and Phase 1 of the Transit Master Plan which was approved by the City in November (see www.canbyareatransit.org for more information). Proposed changes are to:
* Revise the name of the CAT route from Route 99 to Route 99X
* Simplify the schedule
* Expand service hours by increasing the number of hours provided from 30 revenue service hours per day to 39 revenue service hours per day. See attached draft schedule.

To accomplish this two bus stops will be eliminated. Stop 1125 at the Vietnam Era Memorial on SW 4th Avenue and Stop 4000 inside the Canby Market Center parking lot 1401 SE 1st will be eliminated.

The proposed new Route 99X would run between Oregon City and Woodburn once per hour from 5:25 am until 8:20 pm. The first bus leaving Oregon City at 5:25 am and the last bus leaving Woodburn at 7:32 pm.

The proposed new Route 99X would run between Oregon City and Canby at least hourly between 5:00 am and 10:45 pm. The first bus leaving Canby at 5:00 am and the last bus leaving Oregon City at 10:25 pm. During commute hours the frequency between Oregon City and Canby would be half hourly. From 5:30 am until 8:30 am and from 3:30 pm until 6:30 pm.

Following the public comment period a final schedule will be drafted and distributed. The change would be implemented on April 2, 2018.
