The transportation in Deschutes City is world class. Served locally by buses, subways, and light rail and regionally by heavy rail and monorail, owning a car is hardly needed by anyone.

The downtown area is served by all of these modes of transportation. They all converge at what's know as the Downtown Transit Center. Here, Deschutes Central Station (the 1930s rail station) connects with a monorail stop and the Central Terminal (the gray, rectangular bus and subway hub).
