  • Do you close for inclement weather?
    Yes. Dial-A-Bus follows the Corvallis School District’s schedule for weather closures. Rides will be cancelled on snow days and all riders will be called and informed. Although we also drive the Benton Area Transit routes, they do not necessarily close on the same schedule, you can visit for more info on their schedule and cancellations.
