40th Anniversary HOP 200As C-TRAN celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2021, we’re excited to launch a special passport program to highlight some of Clark County’s landmarks—and some hidden gems. Participants can win a commemorative 40th anniversary swag bag, plus a chance at a pre-loaded Hop card worth $125.

Here’s how it works:

Each week, we’ll post a clue about a specific location or landmark in Clark County. If you know what it is, send us a selfie at that location via email to 40th@c-tran.com, with the location visible, and you’ll be entered. Please include your name and the best way to contact you. All correct answers will receive a gift bag with several C-TRAN 40th anniversary swag items. The following week, a random drawing will determine the grand prize winner who will receive a pre-loaded Hop Fastpass card with an Express monthly pass—good on any C-TRAN or TriMet route—a value of $125. Winners will be contacted about how to pick up their prizes.

Clues will be posted every Thursday to the C-TRAN Facebook page and at www.c-tran.com/40th. To avoid spoilers, please don’t post your answer/selfie in the comments for everyone to see.

Week #4 (posted July 22):

The home of a dairy farm, it lives in the city. Its walls are painted oh-so-pretty.

Send in your selfie by the end of day, Wednesday, July 28. Good luck!

C-TRAN celebrates 40 years in service

A lot has changed in Clark County since C-TRAN first started rolling in July 1981. We’ve changed with it. Millions of rides later, C-TRAN has grown into an award-winning public transportation system. As we celebrate 40 years of service in 2021, join C-TRAN for a series of activities and events happening throughout the summer and beyond.

Thank you for an amazing 40 years serving you, our community.

So...how did we get here?

C-TRAN’s history goes back to 1981, but the story of transit in Clark County goes back much further than that.

C-TRAN is proud to partner with the Clark County Historical Museum on a new exhibit exploring the history of transportation in our region: from the streetcars and ferries of the early 20th century to C-TRAN's first 40 years and beyond. The exhibit includes a series of historic images and information panels covering the growth of C-TRAN as Clark County grew with it, plus historical items and other displays.

The exhibit is now on display on the fifth floor of the Vancouver Community Library, 901 C St., and will remain there for the rest of this year and into 2022. Check it out!
