Willamette Airport Shuttle

We will be polling students the week of October 19, 2020 to assess their interest in a Willamette charter shuttle using MTRWestern, a private charter bus company. We are hoping to offer up to two shuttles on Tuesday, November 24, 2020, and two shuttles on November 25, 2020. The shuttle will run only if there is enough student interest to fill the 14 socially-distanced seats on each bus.

Currently, Groome Transportation is not offering shuttles to PDX due to COVID-19.
