What is the downtown City of Hood River Employee Pass Program?
The City of Hood River and Columbia Area Transit (CAT) have partnered to offer employees of downtown City of Hood River businesses free annual GOrge Passes through the CAT Hood River Downtown Pass Program. These Passes provide transportation on all CAT transit services (including the Columbia Gorge Express and the Gorge-to-Mountain Express), The Link Transit in The Dalles, Skamania County Transit, and Mt. Adams Transportation Services.
The main goal of the program is to reduce traffic congestion, parking issues and costs to work in downtown Hood River, with the added benefit of providing an opportunity to experience public transportation firsthand.
