BEND, Ore. -

Cascades East Transit is implementing the planned changes to Bend area Routes 4, 5, and 6 as discussed at community meetings earlier this year.

These changes are the first changes resulting from the recently completed Bend Transit Plan.

The changes are designed to improve service to passengers at no extra cost to the
system, specifically to enable Route 5 to return to the regular 40-minute “pulse,”
thereby allowing Route 5 passengers to transfer to other routes more easily.

In summary, the changes are:
• combine outbound Route 5 with inbound Route 6;
• combine outbound Route 6 with inbound Route 5; and
• return Route 4 to its former pattern and transfer the current Route 4 stops at
the Bend Community Center and Marshall High School to Route 5.

Cascades East Transit hosted public information sessions to discuss the proposed
changes in February. Officials say since there were no significant concerns raised at those meetings, CET is implementing the changes, effective Monday, May 13.
