Redmond Transit Gets a Boost, Bend Transit Making Changes 

Good news for public transit in Central Oregon! Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council, the group that coordinates transit in the area, will be receiving a $25,000 grant from The Partnership to End Poverty, to help establish a fixed route bus system in Redmond.

The project is a collaboration between The Partnership, Central Oregon Community College and Cascade East Transit. The grant will make up just over half of the estimated $40,000 it will cost to run the new fixed route system through June 2014. The initial grant will allow CET to build a stable funding model, insuring that the route begins operation this month and continues to operate long term. The proposed system would be the first fixed route system, outside of Bend, in Central Oregon, and is expected to have 120 riders within the first few months of operation.
