Ozark Regional Transit

Ozark Regional Transit

Ozark Regional Transit, Inc. is dedicated to providing safe, reliable, and affordable public transportation to both the rural and urban residents of the four county area within our jurisdiction



Ozark Regional Transit (ORT) has been providing transportation in Northwest Arkansas since 1975.  Our Board of Directors consists of regional leadership and we continue our mission to provide demand-response transportation to those who do not, or cannot drive.

In July 2002, ORT began our fixed-route service in Fayetteville under the Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) with funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). 

In the fall of 2005, we converted or added a total of six new fixed-routes in Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale and Fayetteville.

In 2014, with the support of local municipalities and using the recently passed transportation tax, ORT redesigned the entire bus network, added six additional routes and began service to six previously-un-serviced communities, with fixed-routes.


Today we operate fourteen Fixed-Routes in addition to ADA/Para-Transit and Demand-Response services.
