Through a partnership with Cherriots Public Transit, United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley offers bus passes at no cost to local nonprofit organizations for distribution to clients who need transportation in the Salem-Keizer area. The Cherriots’ Bus Pass program provides one-day bus passes to qualified organizations that serve clients in need of transportation support.
United Way does not distribute bus passes to individuals directly, qualified organizations who successfully complete the application process are responsible for distributing passes to those in need of transportation support. Non-profit organizations serving Salem and Keizer area residents may apply to receive Cherriots Day Passes at no cost to your organization.
The current application is for the six month period of January 2023 to June 2023
Organizations receiving Cherriots Day Passes from United Way must report on how they utilized the bus passes. As part of the reporting, organizations receiving bus passes must submit at least one story telling us how the bus pass program impacted or benefited one of your clients. At the conclusion of the application process, United Way will provide a Tracking Form via email.
