Salem-Keizer Transit 101-112 is wheelchair accessible.

Salem Area Mass Transit District 101-112 are 2002 OBI Orion VII CNG (07.502) buses.

Interior layout of 101-112.

These were ordered in September, 2001 and were expected to be delivered in late 2002. They were finally delivered in early 2003 from delays in manufacturing due to Metropolitan Transportation Authority's large Orion VII CNG order.

These buses replaced the 9 1980 GMC RTS-04 (T7J-604) 1500-1508 units and 3 of the 1986 GMC RTS-04 (T7J-604) 1529-1550 units.

The paint scheme of the buses was a red variation of the Orion VII demonstrator units.

Originally just for 6 units, all 12 units received new CNG tanks as the age of the buses approached 15 years old in 2016-2017.

When the order of the six 2018 Gillig Low Floor CNG 35' buses 1801-1806 were placed into service 6 units were retired; 101-106 in order.

With the arrival of the four 2019 Gillig Low Floor CNG 35' buses 1901-1904, four additional units have been or are planned to retire, 107-110 in order.

This leaves 111 and 112 without replacements and according to Cherriots staff they will be in service until more buses will be on order.
