About Sherman County Community Transit

Sherman County Community Transit, also known as Sherman Transit or Community Transit, provides public bus transportation services throughout Sherman County to The Dalles for shopping and medical appointments, Portland and other cities for medical appointments, and special scheduled events. Sherman County receives Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Special Transportation Funds (STF), Statewide Transportation Improvement Funds (STIF), Federal 5310 Capital Funds, and State/Federal Discretionary Grant Funding to provide priority transportation to seniors and disabled persons. Public transportation to all others is provided as space allows. Veterans' medical rides are also provided by appointment.

There are no required fares. However, donations are always gladly accepted and encouraged for all rides, including medical.
