Summer Service Area

The Summer Service Area includes areas of Bend where it’s most difficult to move residents and visitors around during summer months. Ride Bend connects to citywide and regional bus service at CET’s Hawthorne Station.

Ride Bend was made possible by a partnership between the City of Bend, Visit Bend, the Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization, OSU-Cascades, Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council, and St. Charles Health System.

The Most Epic Labor Day Weekend in Bend

We all enjoy the perk of having a 3-day weekend (or longer) at the beginning of September. It’s a good excuse to squeeze in the last summer vacation before school starts and certain activities close down for the colder months. One of the coolest places to spend that vacation to take full advantage of the end of summer recreation is Bend, Oregon. Whether you want to spend it sipping cold brews along the Bend Ale Trail, floating the Deschutes River, hiking along one of Bend’s infamous trails, or shopping at the Old Mill District, these activities are a good way to fill in your sunny vacation days and will make for one epic weekend in Bend.
