Transitions: May 2016

No Single Ride Tickets or Promotional Coupons Accepted

Since the end of 2014, C-TRAN has not accepted single ride tickets or promotional coupons. This was in preparation for our new fareboxes, which can’t accept these types of fares. A two-month exchange program was offered to passengers who wanted to trade in these tickets for punch cards; however, this program is no longer available. We thank you for your understanding.

The Vine—Coming Soon!

C-TRAN’s bus rapid transit project, The Vine, is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016. That means construction is under way! Several locations are impacted, as well as nearby bus access; for the latest construction information, please visit www.thevine.c-tran.com/construction. If you haven’t already, please make sure you sign up to receive free email and text alerts through the C-TRAN website. You can also find information on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

As always, C-TRAN appreciates your patience as we work to improve your transit experience.

Monthly Construction Update Meetings

Once a month, C-TRAN hosts a morning coffee to provide updates on the project and answer any questions you may have. Meetings are typically held the third week of the month from 9:00–10:30 am. Locations rotate, so please visit The Vine website for details.


Summer Event Shuttles

C-TRAN will once again provide shuttle service to Independence Day at Fort Vancouver presented by Bank of America, and the Annual Clark County Fair. Shuttle service will be free to both events this year, and anyone who rides a shuttle will receive a coupon valid for $1 off gate admission.
