The Corvallis Transit System The City of Corvallis subsidized a private transit company from 1970 through January 1981. Compensation was paid from a combination of City general fund dollars and state transit funds. The service offered limited routes and operating hours. In the late 1970's the City began looking at expanding the system and in 1979 received a state grant to purchase three buses.

Salem Keizer Transit The Salem Keizer Transit—better known as the Cherriots—was formed by a vote of the Salem/Keizer area electorate in 1979, with the purpose of consolidating transit services within the urban growth boundary and securing an ongoing funding base for the operation of the system. A nine-member, elected Board of Directors was called for in the enabling legislation (later changed to the present-day’s seven-member Board), and the new Board took over the staffing and operation of the Cherriots system from the City of Salem, in July 1981. Today’s seven-member Board provides the policy direction for a 70-bus transit operation serving nearly 200,000 residents in the Salem and Keizer urban areas. The District is developing a new strategic plan and 10-year financial plan which will maintain the services now offered by Cherriots, as well as plan for and provide the resources for the continued improvement of public transit services in the future.
