Retirement Community Transportation Options

The Knights of Pythias Retirement Community currently has a van that takes the residents shopping every Thursday morning.

Residents get to choose from three full service supermarkets including WinCo, Walmart, and Fred Meyer. The van leaves at nine and residents are back in time for their noon meal. The trip is free to our residents.

The van currently does not have a lift. Residents do need to be mobile enough to get in and out of the van on their own, and we cannot store wheel chairs on the van.

Mass Transit

KOPRC is located right on a major C-Tran bus line for any other trips the residents want to take. To the north and south of our retirement community are several shopping opportunities, healthcare facilities, restaurants, and entertainment options.
