Yamhill County Oregon – Yamhill County Transit (YCT) operates transit service in Yamhill County with connections to Tri-Met, Cherriots and Tillamook County Transit District.
Effective 4/10/20, YCT is requesting that all riders wear face covering, like a mask or bandana. For riders transferring to Cherriots in Salem, please be aware Cherriots is requiring face coverings when riding the bus.
YCT is still allowing people on the bus for essential trips. Essential trips for work and critical needs like groceries or medication. Everyone else PLEASE STAY HOME.
Please remember to adhere to all CDC guidelines and maintain social distancing as much as possible when riding the bus. To help with social distancing on the bus, certain seats are blocked on the bus. YCT has extra buses staged to help with routes where buses are too full.
When possible, riders may board through the back doors. This is to provide drivers more space so they can stay healthy. Extra cleaning is taking place throughout the day at the transit center and on the buses.
Yamhill County Transit wants to thank the amazing First Transit staff, the manager, drivers, dispatchers, field supervisors and maintenance staff. They are providing an essential service in our community under very challenging circumstances.
CT staff continues to monitor ridership and staffing levels and will adjust services as necessary. Ridership is remaining at last week’s level of about 20% of normal.
