Oregon State Fairgrounds

Cherriots will offer service to vaccine clinics at the Oregon State Fairgrounds via a detour of Route 13 on all days (excluding Sundays). There is a single temporary stop placed on the east side of 17th St. at the Red Gate of the fairgrounds.

When this detour is in effect, Route 13 will not serve Silverton Rd @ Portland Rd (Stop ID 1768) on trips to Chemeketa Community College. 

Cherriots LIFT and Cherriots Shop and Ride are also currently serving the fairgrounds on clinic days with the first drop-off at 7:45 am and the last drop-off at 1 pm to ensure return trips will be available. Riders can call the Cherriots call center at 503-315-5544 for reservations.
