We are proud to celebrate 40 years of service to our riders in the Mid-Willamette Valley! The Salem Area Mass Transit District was formed by voters in the Salem urban growth boundary on Nov. 6, 1979. We have a whole year of celebrations lined up:
- December: we'll be participating in the Keizer Holiday Lights parade with our new 40th anniversary logo all lit up.
- January of 2020: we'll be wrapping one of our buses to make it look like a vintage bus design from the past. Which paint scheme will we choose?
- February: we'll be celebrating Valentine's Day AND Oregon's birthday.
- March: we'll be displaying memorabilia and artifacts from Cherriots history at the capitol.
- April: Cherriots will be celebrating Earth Day with a scavenger hunt.
- May: we'll be rolling out Sunday service and participating in the Keizer Iris Festival parade.
- And stay tuned on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates on even more upcoming events!
