Getting around Bend
The map for the brand new FREE Ride Bend shuttle.
Traffic can be tricky in Bend, Oregon. This summer, you have two brand new options for navigating without the need to drive your own car.
The first is the new Ride Bend shuttle connecting greater Downtown Bend destinations from June 23 through Labor Day. The shuttle is free of charge, and runs every 15 minutes circulating in a clockwise loop between Downtown Bend, the Old Mill District, OSU-Cascades Campus, and Galveston Avenue. The free shuttle is made possible by a partnership between Visit Bend, the City of Bend and Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council.
The second option is a new bike share program that has stations popping up all over town, including in the Old Mill District, Downtown Bend and at OSU-Cascades. Download the Zagster app for your phone to get started.
And of course, an organized tour is another way to make sure you don’t have to haggle for parking at popular trailheads. Book a canoe outing or volcanic adventure with Wanderlust Tours and leave the driving, planning and gear to someone else.
