Effective Monday, January 9, Ozark Regional Transit will expand its On-Demand Transit (ODT) service in Bentonville with the addition of a new ODT van. The van will operate Monday through Friday during peak hours, for a total of 7 hours per day.
With the inclusion of this additional van, there will be a total of 3 ODT vans available for service throughout most of the week. The expansion is expected to both reduce the time it takes to book a ride and to complete a ride, thanks to the increased availability and seamless integration with the rest of the ODT assets in Bentonville.
