About the Program
Transit Services consists of two components: Service provided directly by the Tribe, or public transit services available to Tribal members with Tribal ID. To learn more about these services, read below.
Services Provided Directly by the Tribe
Through a network of Tribally-owned vans and busses, Tribal members receive transportation to:
- Scheduled group activities
- Congregate meals for Elders
- Medical appointments
and other destinations for which other public or private transportation services is not readily available. These services are available on an as-needed basis in Lincoln County and at each of our three Tribal area offices (Portland, Salem, and Eugene). To schedule transportation services from the Tribe, contact the relevant Tribal program, including; Elders, Health Services, Employment, Culture, and Education.
Scheduling Tribal Transportation

Scheduled Public Transit Services
Through a federal Tribal Transit grant awarded to the Tribe, we have contracted with Lincoln County Transit to greatly expand the services available to Tribal members (and other community members) in Siletz and along the most frequently traveled corridors stretching from Toledo to Newport to Lincoln City.
As part of our agreement with the county, Tribal Members can ride for free on county buses by showing their Tribal ID.
