Fixed-Route Bus Option

Fixed-route services are an excellent, encouraged option for those who are located near bus stops and for those that are not eligible for Special Transportation Services. Benton Area Transit, Corvallis Transit System (CTS), and Albany Transit System (ATS) buses are wheelchair accessible. CTS buses have a feature that allows the bus to kneel, making it easier for passengers to board and exit the vehicle. To learn how to use the bus, call Corvallis Transit System at 541-766-6998; Benton Area Transit at 541-766-2111; and Albany Transit System at 541-917-7667.
