SouthWest (Klamath Falls-Brookings)

Service Alert
9/1/2023

10/28/23 UPDATE: Service between Brookings and Grants Pass along U.S. 199 has resumed following the announcement by Caltrans District 1 to partially reopen the highway to traffic. This resumption of service is subject to change at any time. Passengers should anticipate possible delays. The JCT bus bridge has been temporarily suspended due to expected travel delays associated with ongoing wildfire maintenance. Service to and from Brookings will extend to Grants Pass every day until further notice. Tickets may be purchased from Pacific Crest Bus Lines, FlixBus, Amtrak, and Megabus.


9/25/23 UPDATE: Due to low ridership and ongoing technical challenges with ticketing, POINT service will discontinue temporary re-routing to Coos Bay on Friday, September 29 and resume truncated service between Brookings and Gasquet in the Northern California/Southern Oregon coastal region on the same day. The truncated portion of service will operate on the normal schedule posted on the POINT website. Ongoing fire suppression and construction efforts on the Smith River Complex Fire along with accompanying rock slides have forced Caltrans to continue to severely restrict vehicle traffic on Highway 199. As a result, POINT service between Brookings and Cave Junction remains suspended indefinitely. ODOT continues to closely monitor the situation and work with its service operator to ensure some level of service can remain available to those in need of transportation in a region where it has operated since 2009.


9/11/23 UPDATE: Effective September 11, the temporary service will operate Friday through Monday only. The new schedule is below and will remain in place until further notice. No other changes at this time.


In response to the Smith River Complex fire and the prolonged closure of Highway 199 and disruption to our service, POINT will be implementing temporary changes to the SouthWest Route on Sunday, September 3 which will reorient the coastal portion of service exclusively to Highway 101 travel between Crescent City and Coos Bay. Grants Pass-Klamath Falls service will continue as normal. Brookings-Cave Junction service has been suspended indefinitely.

This new schedule will provide a new option for Crescent City-Brookings area residents to conveniently and safely access other services and communities in Oregon. Tickets are currently only available from our operator. They can be purchased on their website, over the phone, and from the driver with a debit or credit card. We are working on setting up additional ticket options. The temporary schedule will remain in place until further notice.
