[ARCHIVED] Ozark Regional Transit Offering Free Fare for the Week of Thanksgiving


Bentonville, AR...For more than a decade, Ozark Regional Transit (ORT) has offered free-fares on fixed route transit during the holidays.  In keeping with this multi-year tradition and to show appreciation for another great year of serving Northwest Arkansas, ORT is offering free-fare days beginning with the upcoming Thanksgiving week.

Bus fare for all fixed-route Transit buses will be free of charge the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 25-27 and Nov. 29, the day after Thanksgiving). ORT’s offices and bus services will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28.

ORT would like to extend Happy Holiday wishes to everyone in our regional community.


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 and free for 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:
