Service Update: Starting Monday, April 26, 2021, the Mt. Bachelor shuttle will operate on a reduced schedule seven days per week.
Riding the Mt. Bachelor shuttle allows you to avoid driving in snowy weather and gives you peace of mind for an exciting snow excursion. For the safety and health of passengers, CET will continue to implement Oregon Health Authority guidelines for transit agencies that include wiping down high-touch surfaces every four hours, monitoring social distance requirements (3 feet between passengers and 6 feet between passengers and drivers), requiring face coverings for all riders, and maintaining maximum occupancy passenger limits on buses.
To reduce interactions between drivers and customers, all Mt. Bachelor fares will be electronic (no cash or paper tickets). Download the TouchPass app or pick up a TouchPass card from Hawthorne Station from 7am – 5pm on weekdays. For detailed instructions on how to use the app, click here. For detailed instructions on how to use the TouchPass card, click here. One-way fares are $10 and roundtrip fares are $20. There are no discounts available for roundtrip fares and refunds are not available. Individuals can purchase a maximum of 10 of each fare product at any given time. CET and Mt. Bachelor are working hard to accommodate riders this season by providing additional shuttles and increased frequency. With maximum capacity limits for all vehicles, we recommend getting to your bus stop early to secure a spot (first come, first serve). Please note that the bus will not stop if it has already reached its capacity limit and you are not guaranteed a ride if you are at the stop. If you are in financial hardship and need assistance paying for your fare, please call 541-385-8680.
The Mt. Bachelor shuttle transports riders from Bend to the mountain and back. Stops along the route include Hawthorne Station, Mt. Bachelor Park-N-Ride, and Mt. Bachelor’s West Village Lodge. Please note the last morning run up the mountain leaves the Mt. Bachelor Park-N-Ride at 9:30am. Due to snow conditions and ride volume, service changes can occur.
