Ozark Regional Transit's Route 490 will undergo major changes starting Monday, August 7, 2017. In an effort to streamline and improve service on Rt 490, the Lot 56 stop will be moved North to the Arkansas Archeological Survey off I-49 Exit 66 and Garland Ave at 2475 N Hatch Avenue. The schedule has changed to increase productivity on this route and to drastically improve timing - see new schedule below. The changes are being made in an effort to keep 490 on time and running smoothly (even with construction and traffic).
Connections can be made at the Arkansas Archeological Survey stop to the Razorback Blue line. ORT will also take free transfers from the Razorback Blue line.
There will be a park and ride lot at the Arkansas Archeological Survey for people riding Route 490 or the Commuter Express. No University of Arkansas parking tag is required to use the park and ride lot.
Lot 56 will now only be serviced by Route 1.
