Ozark Regional Transit Offering Free Fare During Spring Break

Spring is in the air and all of Northwest Arkansas is prepared to come alive again!

In addition to free fares offered in Fayetteville year-round, Ozark Regional Transit (ORT) is offering free fares during Spring Break (March 18 – March 22) for all 10 fixed routes in Northwest Arkansas.

Spring Break is the first of several free-fare periods that ORT offers each year. ORT passengers are encouraged 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 the area has to offer.

Free fare is for fixed-route service only. Demand/response service remains at the $2.50 rate for one-way passage. 

ORT has three Fixed Routes in Fayetteville, three in Springdale, two in Rogers and one in Bentonville. Additionally, ORT offers an express bus service between Fayetteville and Bentonville which is very popular with NWACC students.

Curb-to-Curb services are offered in all 4 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 and all Fixed Route buses are bicycle-friendly. Information on Curb-to-Curb Service and Fixed-Route transit can be obtained by calling ORT at (479) 756-5901 or visit ORT’s website:
