Columbia Area Transit (CAT) has scheduled three public meetings to inform the public of their expanded services and to gather input from residents and businesses. Through funding from an Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) grant, CAT will begin providing the Columbia Gorge Express service. In combination with other funding, CAT will be offering services on the CGE from The Dalles to Portland seven days a week. The expanded service will make stops in Hood River, Cascade Locks, and Multnomah Falls before its final stop in Portland’s Gateway Transit Center. The public is encouraged to attend these public meetings and invited to offer input about the proposed stops and service levels along the route.
