The GOrge Pass offers unlimited fixed route bus travel to and from Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA, and all around the Columbia River Gorge. The pass is valid for a calendar year, ending on December 31.

The pass is a collaboration between the Mid-Columbia Economic Development District and four transit providers of the Gorge:

  • Columbia Area Transit (CAT)
  • The Link Public Transit (The Link)
  • Mt. Adams Transportation Service (MATS)
  • Skamania County Transit

The GOrge Pass unites transit on the Washington and Oregon sides of the Columbia River in the Gorge to offer a seamless traveling experience for bus riders.
