CCC shuttle from mall expanded


Due to increased student demand, Clackamas Community College last week added a second free shuttle bus during peak hours from the end of the MAX Green Line at Clackamas Town Center to the college’s Oregon City campus.

With the support of a $30,000 TriMet grant, CCC provides free shuttle service eight hours a day, Monday through Thursday and on Friday mornings. Service is offered during the academic year, but not during breaks. During the first week of classes, the shuttle was full at peak times, and some students were turned away and given bus passes. CCC solicited a bid to add another shuttle during high-use times in mornings and afternoons.

Bus transportation from the mall to CCC in Oregon City can take up to two hours. The shuttle is able to transport students between the two locations in 20 to 25 minutes, providing a significant benefit to students who rely on public transportation. The schedule is posted on the CCC website for the free service that is open to the public.
