Dial-a-ride and connecting service for Vancouver’s Rose Village neighborhood, La Center, Ridgefield, and Camas

C-TRAN’s Connector provides fully accessible dial-a-ride service that is combined with regular stop service to Vancouver’s Rose Village neighborhood and the cities of Camas, La Center and Ridgefield. That means riders can catch Connector at a scheduled time and location, as shown on the printed schedule, or choose to schedule a ride for a time and location of their own choosing simply by calling their driver. Connector provides an easy link to C-TRAN’s fixed route network for people who live in those cities, but not near a regular bus route. Just need a quick ride? The Connector also provides point-to-point service within the communities it serves. Rides are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Rides can be arranged within the service area by calling the operator at the numbers listed below. For transportation beyond the Connector service areas, passengers may transfer to C-VAN or other fixed route buses at transit centers. Service hours and frequency vary from city to city, so please check the schedule for your specific area.
