May 17, 2018 – Since February, MCEDD has been operating the LINK Transportation Network providing public transit in Wasco County. MCEDD is improving this vital community service and is excited to announce a new offering: free Dial-a-Ride bus service to The Dalles Farmers’ Market, Saturdays from June to October 2018!
To ride, call the LINK at 541-296-7595 to request a pick-up time and location. For best availability, schedule rides at least one day before. The LINK picks up riders at their door and brings them to The Dalles Farmers’ Market. Riders can stock up on delicious local fruits, vegetables and more while enjoying live music and the fun community atmosphere. Then the LINK takes riders home or to their location of choice. This transportation is offered completely free thanks to a grant from PacificSource.
