About the summer shuttle service

Cascades East Transit launched this new outdoor recreation service between Bend and Mt Bachelor in June 2023. Expanding on the success of the popular Winter Shuttle to Mt Bachelor, this new Summer Shuttle branded as Transit to Trails includes stops at popular trailheads along Century Drive. It operates five days a week, from Wednesday to Sunday, and offers four trips per day from Juneteenth to Labor Day.

“We’re excited to launch an ADA-accessible public transit service that will provide access to popular hiking and mountain biking trailheads without the need to use a personal vehicle,” noted Andrea Breault, CET’s Transportation Director. “We encourage locals and visitors to ride the shuttle to help alleviate traffic congestion, free up parking spaces at trailheads, and reduce carbon emissions. If the pilot service is successful this summer [2023], CET hopes to bring it back again next year.”

The service continues to be in a pilot status for 2024. After this summer season ends, the service will be evaluated for continuation.

The Mt Bachelor Summer Shuttle is funded through a Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) grant through the 2024 season and a contribution from Mt Bachelor.

“The summer shuttle offers new opportunities for residents and visitors to enjoy Mt Bachelor’s summer amenities such as the mountain bike park, zipline, frisbee golf, hiking trails, scenic chairlift rides, and the resort’s food and beverages,” said Ryan Gage, Director of Base Operations at Mt Bachelor. “Having a car-free travel option for our community members to visit Mt. Bachelor and take part in our summer activities is very appealing and we encourage people to take advantage of this resource.

The shuttle’s location can be tracked in real time with the Passio Go app. The shuttle is also equipped with free wireless internet for passengers.

FAQs

Each shuttle has capacity for 38 riders and 8 bikes. Just like the regular city bus, purchasing fare in advance does not guarantee a seat on busy days.

We don’t anticipate space being a problem, but if you’re planning a large adventure party, you may like to explore options with local adventure outfitters.

Unfortunately, Cascades East Transit is not able to take reservations. Seats for you and space for your bike are first come, first served.

Cog Wild in Bend provides reservations for bike shuttles and even guided tours. Other adventure outfitters may offer similar services.

After the first run, each of the three trips up the mountain are round-trip. However, we strongly encourage riders to understand how much time they expect to take in the woods and know when your return trip is scheduled. You may not have much time to explore if you get off on the last trip of the day unless you have another way home planned – like riding your bike down the mountain!

Please dial 911 if you encounter an emergency situation. The Deschutes County non-emergency dispatch line is 541-693-6911.

Shuttle service may be interrupted in the event of extreme weather or fire emergencies. If shuttles have run part of the day before an emergency halt is declared, CET will work with local emergency services and/or send a shuttle to each stop as soon as it is safe to bring riders home.
