Cherriots 40th Anniversary

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're encouraging people to give blood by giving out free passes.
  • February: we're wrapping a bus in a retro design. Which one will we choose?
  • March: we'll be displaying memorabilia and artifacts from Cherriots history at the capitol.
  • April: Cherriots will be celebrating Earth Day.
  • 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!
