Corvallis & Philomath Paratransit Service
What is Paratransit Service?
The City of Corvallis and the City of Philomath each provide urban bus services. These services are called the Corvallis Transit System (CTS) and the Philomath Connection (PC), respectively. As part of providing a public bus system, these two cities are required to provide a service called Paratransit for people who have disabilities that make it impossible for them to access the bus system. The Cities of Corvallis and Philomath contract with Benton County to provide this important service.
Benton Area Transit (BAT) provides wheelchair-accessible, curb-to-curb service that is a shared-ride experience that mirrors the urban bus systems for people who are within 3/4 of a mile from a CTS or PC bus route and have a disability that prevents them from using transit.
