South Clackamas Transportation District (SCTD)

SCTD operates three routes serving the City of Molalla, Clackamas Community College (CCC), and Canby where you can connect to Canby Area Transit (CAT), and South Metro Area Regional Transit (SMART).

Schedule Deviation

The Molalla bus service operates as a deviated fixed route open to the general public. With advance notice, the bus will deviate up to three-quarters of a mile from the designated route as shown on the printed schedule for any passenger with physical and medical needs.

Customers can call the District Office at 503-829-7000, Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on the day prior to their planned trip (24-hour advance notice required) to request a deviation.

The rider will be assigned a pick-up time. Riders will be required to travel to the curb outside of their trip origin in time for their scheduled pick-up. Vehicles operating on route deviation service will be unable to wait for a passenger who is not at the designated stop on time.

Passenger Assistance

Route deviation services will be provided on a curb-to-curb basis. SCTD drivers will assist riders with disabilities in boarding and disembarking from vehicles and in securing their mobility devices. All drivers who operate SCTD services are proficiently trained in passenger assistance and sensitivity towards persons with disabilities.
