Nine new buses have been added to Cascades East Transit (CET) routes in Bend and on the Community Connector shuttles. Each bus seats 38 passengers, is wheel-chair accessible and replaces CET buses that have outlived their service.
In addition to the bigger buses, new buses will be arriving soon to Dial-A-Ride routes. Plans are also in the works at CET to purchase our first “low-floor” bus. Low-floor buses have a low floor the entire length of the bus to allow seniors, buggies, and wheelchairs to more easily enter and exit the bus without the use of a lift.
