Explore the Corvallis Transit system (CTS) routes and you'll find that they will take you to almost every corner of the city. The Beaver Bus, which operates late at night, does the same.
Downtown Transit Center
Most of the CTS routes originate at the Downtown Transit Center (DTC), located at SW 5th Street and Monroe Avenue. The DTC sits behind Corvallis City Hall and is just a few blocks away from downtown shopping and dining.
For our riders' comfort, the there is a public restroom at the DTC which is open Monday - Saturday, 5 am - 2:30 am. Sensors in the restroom door automatically lock the door when they detect someone has entered the room.
CTS and the Beaver Bus are fareless! Everyone may ride without paying a fare or showing a special ID.

Transfers / Flow-Through Routes
Since CTS buses are fareless, transfer slips between CTS buses are not necessary. However it is helpful to tell the driver that you will be making a transfer; if buses are running late, the driver can radio to the bus you will connect to and request they wait for you to arrive for the transfer.
When a bus changes route numbers at the DTC, it is called a flow-through. You might be able to get to your destination without having to transfer to another CTS bus because most of the CTS bus routes change into a different route when they arrive at the DTC. The current flow-through routes are:
Route 2 - changes into the Route 3, Mon - Fri. // On Saturday Route 2 - changes into the Route 4
Route 3 - changes into the Route 2, Mon - Fri. // On Saturday Route 3 - changes into the Route 8
Route 4 - changes into the Route 8, Mon - Fri. // On Saturday Route 4 - changes into the Route 2
Route 5 - changes into the Route 6
Route 6 - most runs change into the Route 5
Route 8 - changes into the Route 4, Mon - Fri. // On Saturday Route 8 - changes into the Route 3
Route C3 - changes into the Route C2, Mon - Fri.
Routes 1, 7, and C1 do not change.
Administrative Note: The last route revisions became effective September 24, 2012.
