The following changes were approved by the C-TRAN Board of Directors and are based on C-TRAN’s newly adopted performance standards. These changes take effect Sunday, September 15, 2013: 

Route 2 Lincoln : Due to low service performance caused by limited rider demand, Sunday service is discontinued. Service hours have been reallocated to Route 65 Parkrose to meet increased demand on that route. 

Route 65 Parkrose Limited: Due to high service performance caused by increased passenger demand, C-TRAN has added Sunday service on this route, between approximately 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., using resources reallocated from Route 2 Lincoln. 

Route 35 Tech Center: Due to low service performance caused by limited rider demand, service is discontinued on this route and has been reallocated to Route 37 for continued service to East 192nd Avenue via Mill Plain Boulevard, weekdays only. 

Route 37 Mill Plain: Due to increased passenger demand along Mill Plain, schedule reliability will be improved and service to Tech Center/East Mill Plain will continue by splitting the current Route 37 in downtown Vancouver to create three separate routes:

    • Adds an early trip from Battle Ground to Yacolt in the morning and a late trip from Yacolt to Battle Ground in the evening. 

Route 134 Salmon Creek Express: peak frequency is reduced to every 15 minutes to better match current passenger demand. 

I-5 Express Corridor (105, 134, and 199 ): 

    • Morning schedules have been adjusted to provide more evenly spaced departures of southbound trips traveling from Salmon Creek Park & Ride (105 & 134) and the 99th Street Transit Center (105 & 199); 
    • Evening schedules have been adjusted to provide more evenly spaced departures of northbound trips traveling from downtown Portland; and
