Transportation Resources to Access Cooling Centers in Clackamas County

Public Transit Resources

TriMet does not charge fares to get to and from a cooling center site during extreme heat. Please check their website or call customer service (503-238-7433) to verify. NOTE: If going by bus, please tell the operator as you come on board that you’re heading to a cooling center. Riders should plan for some heat-related delays, as MAX and WES trains have to slow down when it gets too hot to prevent damaging the system. In other areas of the county, please call dispatch for assistance:

For other transportation resources, please call 2-1-1 for assistance.
