Travel Car-Free


Driving over the age of 50 may not always be an option, but this doesn’t mean you have to give up your independence.

Plan a Trip

Use ODOT’s Plan a Car-Free trip page to plan a trip on transit and find information about dial-a-ride service and more.

Active Transportation

Walking, using a wheelchair, or bicycling are great ways to get to your destination independently.  You can learn more about our Bicycle and Pedestrian Program or make an accessibility request through our ADA Program.

Public Transportation

Use ODOT's TripCheck Transit & Taxi Service Finder to search for Oregon transit services and taxi companies by city or county.

The tool includes options to search for dial-a-ride services and services for people with special needs.
