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!
