Mount Adams Transportation Service (MATS)

Providing the Transportation You Need


We will take you where you need to be:
  • Educational opportunities
  • Employment (limited)
  • Grocery shopping
  • Medical appointments
  • Social service appointments
This service is designed to enable Klickitat County residents who lack transportation resources to meet their basic needs.

We have both buses and private vehicles available in Goldendale and White Salmon, with each office serving its end of the county. If you live in or west of Dallesport or Klickitat, please call White Salmon for service. If you live to the east of these towns, you are in the Goldendale service area. We have approximately 12 volunteer drivers between the two offices that volunteer their time and vehicle to provide transportation service to county residents. They are licensed and insured and have had their vehicles and driving skills evaluated. Our van drivers are licensed and trained to serve your transportation needs.
