Effective this Friday, July 1, we will be making schedule changes to the Cascades Route. Please review the new schedule below and note the changes in red.

Through recent public outreach surveys, you told us that something you would like to see is fewer stops and faster travel times. We heard you! With this schedule change we will be adding two new buses that will operate as express runs between Portland and Eugene through the summer and possibly longer. 

This change also adds back two daily runs that were suspended during the pandemic, bringing us almost back to pre-pandemic levels!

POINT always prioritizes connections with other services and builds its schedules to maximize the number of connections at every stop. Please check out all the options available by using the Connections & Parking tool on the Cascades page.
