What to Expect

  • Smaller Buses — Route 22 utilizes 25-foot buses to allow access to areas that would not be possible with a standard 35-foot or 40-foot bus. 
  • ADA Accessible — Route 22 buses are equipped with an ADA accessible ramp and two priority seating areas with safety restraints for mobility devices.
  • Bike Rack — Route 22 buses are equipped with a bike rack that can accommodate up to two bikes.
  • Standing Room — Like other Cherriots buses, if no seats are available riders may stand and hold onto the provided poles for safety.
  • New Day Passes — Day Passes purchased on Route 22 will be in the form of a paper token with a QR code printed on it, and scanned with the Umo reader when boarding. These tokens are valid on all other Cherriots Local and Cherriots Regional routes.
     

 

Identifying the Need, Funding the Solution

The need for a route along Kuebler Blvd that would link south Lancaster and south Commercial has been made very apparent to us. Not only has our service analysis indicated the need, but Cherriots Board Members, Cherriots staff, and the public have all expressed a desire for such a route. We are excited to implement this much needed link in south Salem!

Funds from the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF), allowed us to purchase smaller, more dynamic vehicles that can go into smaller areas and turn around. Route 22 is just one example of a route that stands to benefit from these “right-sized” vehicles. These same vehicles may also be used on other routes in our system to better match demand and operate more efficiently.
