Sandy's transit department offers several transportation options. These services are designed to accommodate varying levels of accessibility in an integrated transit system. Every effort is made to make the Gresham and Estacada commuter routes (also called fixed route service) accessible and user friendly. We have low-floor vehicles and offer transit training excursions that combine adventure with learning to use the region's transit system. Sandy employs professional dispatch and driving staff who undergo sensitivity training. Sandy Transit works with other city departments such as Planning and Public Works to include curb cuts and braille strips at all intersections along our fixed route.
Our fixed routes are supported with a demand-response service for door-to-door trips as needed to get to local services. This service also acts as a feeder service to the fixed route. We also offer a free shuttle that provides transportation to local shopping. A higher need of assistance requiring door-to-door service for medical appointments outside of the service area is also available for qualified individuals.
Sandy Transit has adopted the Oregon Department of Transportation's DBE goal of 8% for fiscal years 2015-2017.
The Sandy Transit Center is located on Hoffman Street between Proctor Boulevard and Pioneer Boulevard. SAM's fixed route commuter services operate from the transit center. See the
