2012-2022 Yamhill County Transit is celebrating ten years of service, building on a long history of transportation innovation in Yamhill County.
Since the 1880’s transportation has played a critical role in the local economy and improving the quality of people’s lives. The exciting history of transportation in Yamhill County from steamboats to ferries, to the 109-mile Southern Pacific Red Electric rail line called the Yamhill Loop to the more traditional public transit services that began in the 1970’s has built a strong foundation for transit today.
In 2007, the transit district was formed. In 2012 Yamhill County Transit with First Transit as its contract service provider began providing public transportation services. Yamhill County Transit services include demand response, local fixed routes in McMinnville and Newberg and commuter services to West Salem, Grand Ronde, Hillsboro, and Tigard.
Watch for future 10th anniversary announcements and activities and please join the Celebration!
