Ozark Regional Transit, in collaboration with the Walton Family Foundation, is conducting a study to assess the potential of operating a higher level of bus service along U.S. Business 71 or I-49 between Fayetteville and Bentonville. This new bus service termed Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) may have the following features:

  • Priority treatment at traffic signals to speed up travel time
  • Special boarding platforms for rapid boarding
  • A connecting bus with no wait, to your final destination

A pilot project to operate a "higher level bus service" is being considered. As a part of the planning process, the Project Team is conducting an employee survey. The purpose of the survey is two-fold:

  1. To assess the attitudes of the employees to determine if there is an interest for a higher level of bus service along the U.S. Business 71 or I-49 between Fayetteville and Bentonville
  2. Identify service levels and amenities that would encourage you to ride.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC TRANSIT IN NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, PLEASE TAKE A FEW MOMENTS AND COMPLETE THE SURVEY BY SEPTEMBER 13, 2017.
