All buses have free Wi-Fi, are wheelchair accessible, and have space for bikes and luggage. Visit the website for maps, schedules, and ticket pricing.

The Amtrak Cascades train service is a joint venture between ODOT and the Washington DOT that connects 18 cities in the Pacific Northwest from Eugene to Vancouver, B.C. The train stops at every Amtrak station in the Willamette Valley and is great option for commuting to or from Portland or for a relaxing alternative to driving to Seattle. Visit the website for maps, schedules, and ticket pricing.



 

 

  

 

 
Park and ride lots are parking lots that let you safely and conveniently transfer between different transportation modes. At these lots you can catch a bus, meet a carpool or vanpool, access bike paths, and more. 
 
ODOT's free directory of park and ride lots lists all of the 140+ publically available lots in Oregon. Inside you'll find maps plus information about the amenities and transit connections at each lot. Download the directory here (8MB) or contact us to request a hard copy. You can also click here to print or download maps for individual cities. 

 

Oregon's official online ridesharing tool can help you find a ride to work or an event, find a vanpool to join, or find a biking partner. Registering for Drive Less Connect is free and secure, and you can even win prizes by participating.

 
 
 

At-Risk Driver Transportation Options Flyers

When drivers are required to surrender licenses to the DMV they can feel a sudden loss of freedom and mobility. To help individuals through this transition, the Rail and Public Transit Division is partnering with local DMV offices to provide information about how to get around without a car. See examples below.
More communities are in progress.
