At Ozark Regional Transit, we're committed to providing accessible transportation options that bring communities closer together. That's why we're excited to announce starting April 1, 2024, our latest route: the Bentonville-Rogers Exchange route will start rolling! With six buses running on 30-minute headways and a $0 fare, this route offers convenient and cost-effective travel between Bentonville and Rogers. A special thank you to our community members for sending emails to us requesting more connectivity, our board for keeping this topic on our agenda, and our cities leaders for their teamwork to tackle this new route. Teamwork really makes the dream work!

Highlights:

  • Start date: April 1, 2024 (not an April Fool’s Joke)

  • $0 fare (through 2024)

  • Over 40 stops along the route

  • 30-minute headways - frequency or interval between consecutive departures of buses on a particular route. In this context, it means that a bus departs from a designated stop every 30 minutes. For example, if a route has 30-minute headways, a bus will depart from a stop at 9:00 AM, then the next bus will depart from the same stop at 9:30 AM, followed by another bus at 10:00 AM, and so on.

  • Rogers – Butterfly Garden to Bentonville Community Center

  • Yes, on-demand will still be available.

  • Six buses in total will be used for this route.

  • Bentonville you’re getting a fixed route!!!!

  • Rogers your fixed route just got a glow up!

If you feel the use of exclamation points could have been greater, we apologize … we’re VERY serious and professional public transit organization and so we keep the use of exclamation points to a respectable minimum. No matter how excited we are about our first regional route!!!!
