Mt. Hood Express bus service to hold community meetings in July

The Mt. Hood Express bus service invites the public to attend community meetings in Sandy, Welches and Government Camp to share ideas, concerns or to learn more about the Mount Hood Transit Implementation Plan.

Residents and visitors to the Mount Hood area are encouraged to attend one of these meetings, all held in July, and help shape the Mt. Hood Express public transportation system.

"These public meetings are important to make sure that our transit plan considers the ideas and concerns of the public, both current and future riders," said Jacques Livingston, Administrative Analyst with the Mt. Hood Express.

The Mt. Hood Express bus service runs along U.S. Highway 26 between the city of Sandy and the Government Camp/Timberline areas. The service has recently expanded to seven daily trips during winter months and six daily trips the rest of the year. Additional service enhancements, including ski equipment boxes and bike trailers, provide a unique opportunity for recreational passengers visiting the region. The service is a much-needed transportation option for local residents to travel for employment, medical appointments and vital services.

Meeting locations and times are as follows:

Government Camp meeting
Saturday, July 18, 7 p.m.
