Grant expands shuttle service

By Rebekah Thompson

Getting to class has gotten a lot easier this term due to a shuttle grant Clackamas Community College received last spring.

According to CCC Transportation Systems Analyst Ray Atkinson, the funds were acquired through the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund, which granted CCC a total of $245,774.

This grant has allowed CCC to expand the shuttle’s evening service year-round and add summer term service.

The pre-grant evening service ended at 6:30p.m. Monday through Thursday. The expanded evening service now ends at 10:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Because CCC is closed on Friday during the summer term, the shuttle will be available Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 10:45 p.m.

The shuttle’s extended hours began in June of 2019 and are expected to last through June 2021. Shuttle services are free to all students, faculty and staff, as well as the public.
