This year Valley Airporter plans to transport over 20,000 passengers. To accommodate those passengers, we plan to purchase three brand new 20-passenger buses to replace older 14-passenger buses.
The new buses are needed because of the expansion of airport service. The schedule has continually expanded over the years from three times a day, Monday through Friday only, to ten trips each weekday and nine trips on Saturday and Sunday, 365 days per year.
Valley Airporter operates out of Corvallis which is home to Oregon State University. Over 18,000 thousand students attend the university. In addition, there are over 120 high-tech businesses in Corvallis. Though there is a small airport in Corvallis and a regional airport in Eugene (50 miles south of Corvallis), most travelers prefer to use the Portland International Airport, which is 70 miles north of Corvallis.
Bob and Mary Wilson, co-owners of Valley Airporter, will invest in the purchase of the new vans. The owners will also secure a long-term commercial loan.
The mission of Valley Airporter has been to assure safety, convenience and comfort to every customer.
