Since 1981, C‑TRAN has provided the citizens of Clark County with safe, reliable and convenient public transportation throughout the Clark County service area. Today we also provide Express commuter service to downtown Portland, Lloyd District, and Marquam Hill; Limited bus service with connections to the nearest light rail station; and three Connector service areas within the city limits of Camas, La Center, and Ridgefield.
Benefits of Public Transportation
Using public transportation saves the nation 1.4 billion gallons of gasoline every year, and can reduce your household expenses by $8,500-more than the average household pays for food in a year. As Clark County grows, C‑TRAN will be there to provide transportation options that continue to make this a great place to work and live.
C-TRAN has three transit centers, two of which have on-site Passenger Service offices. C-TRAN Passenger Service can be reached by calling 360-695-0123 or 503-283-8054 (Portland). Visit C-Tran online for schedule and maps.
