Bend Dial-A-Ride will operate on both Saturdays and Sundays starting on 5/1. Please note Route 28 (Sisters to Redmond) does not have Saturday service. Each of those transit services is currently fareless to avoid cash transactions and limit interactions between drivers and passengers.

CET implements Oregon Health Authority Guidelines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, which includes requiring face coverings for drivers and passengers, frequently wiping down high-touch surfaces, monitoring social distance requirements, and enforcing maximum occupancy limits on buses. All of CET’s services except for the Mt. Bachelor shuttle are currently free to the public.
