Ozark Regional Transit (ORT) is offering free fares during Spring Break
Spring is in the air, and all of Northwest Arkansas is prepared to come alive again!
Ozark Regional Transit (ORT) is offering free fares during Spring Break (March 21 – March 25) for all 14 fixed routes in Northwest Arkansas.
Spring Break is the first of several free-fare periods that ORT offers each year. We encourage ORT passengers to use this opportunity of free fares-- and free time offered by the break-- to get out and enjoy all the wonderful springtime activities that our area has to offer.
Free fare is for fixed-route service only. Pre-scheduled paratransit and demand/response service remains at the $2.50 rate for one-way passage.
ABOUT OZARK REGIONAL TRANSIT
ORT has four fixed routes in Fayetteville, five in Springdale, two in Rogers and one in Bentonville. Also, two express route bus services — one, hourly between Fayetteville and Bentonville which is very popular and free for NWACC students, and another, 1 ½ hour express route between West Fork and Lincoln — that connect multiple communities in Northwest Arkansas.
Para-transit services are offered in all 10 cities with fixed-route service and — to a more limited extent — in rural areas and smaller cities in Washington, Benton, Madison and Carroll counties, Monday through Friday.
All ORT vehicles are wheelchair accessible. Bicycle racks are available on all fixed-route buses. Information on para-transit service and fixed-route information can be obtained by calling ORT at (479) 756-5901 or visit ORT’s website: www.ozark.org.
