How to Ride

The five partner agencies of the NW Connector make getting around NW Oregon by transit easy.

  1. Use the trip planner to get a personalized itinerary from Google Maps.
  2. Find routes and stops near you on the interactive map.
  3. Go to the schedule page for your route (click on schedules in the navbar) to see a full timetable and fare info.

Paying for your ride

The easiest way to travel in the NW Connector system is by purchasing a 3 or 7 day visitor pass, that gives you access to the full NW Connector system (and one whole round trip from the Valley to the Coast and back).

Every agency also has cash fares (find them on every route page) and local passes that can get you around just that agency’s routes. Find local pass information on each agency’s page (links can be found at the bottom of every page).

Bikes, Wheelchairs, Service Animals, and more

NW Connector is here to help you get around NW Oregon, along with everything you need to bring.

  • All NW Connector buses are Wheelchair accessible, just ask your driver for assistance
  • Bike racks are installed on all buses. Just load the bike on the front of the bus, and let the driver know you’ll be retrieving it when you disembark from the bus.  Riders are responsible for the proper securing of bicycles.  Click here for a brief instructional video.
  • Service animals are welcome on NW Connector buses, but pets should be kept in an approved carrier.
  • Check out each agency page for local services and policies that might affect your travel

Look for the NW Connector logo at the bus stop

We recently changed our logo, and bus stop signs now have the new logo. Look for the bus stop symbol to the right, or a sign for any of our local agencies, to know you’re at the right stop.
