The Diamond Express intercity transportation service operates between Oakridge and the Eugene/Springfield area.

The service provides three trips each weekday from Oakridge to downtown Eugene and three return trips from Eugene to Oakridge. The service, open to anyone, costs $2.50 one-way. Or, for $5.00, passengers receive a round-trip on the Diamond Express, plus a Day Pass good on all Lane Transit District (LTD) buses on the date purchased.

The Diamond Express was designed with the help of Oakridge and Westfir residents to include these features:

  • Intercity connection to the Eugene-Springfield area

  • Flexible routing with curb-to-curb service within the metro area between 10:30 a.m. and  2:00 p.m.
  • Integrated purchase of Diamond Express round trip fare with LTD Day Pass

The service is managed by Lane Transit District, through a contract with Special Mobility Services (SMS). SMS is a non-profit agency that also operates the RideSource Call Center. For more information about transportation for older adults and people with disabilities go to the RideSource Call Center summary.

Every two years, Lane Transit District (LTD) in cooperation with the City of Oakridge, applies to the Oregon Public Transit Division for funds through the Intercity Passenger Program to operate the Diamond Express. Grants are awarded specifically to provide individuals who live in rural areas access to medical and other services, shopping, school, jobs, and connections to more distant locations. See the "How is the Diamond Express funded?" for details.
