OCWCOG received a Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF) discretionary grant to explore providing a “seamless” experience for transit users across its tri-County Region.
Currently, seven transit agencies operate across Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties, all with different fares, schedules, and routes. While agencies coordinate internally, the goal of this Seamless Transit Project is to provide the same level of coordination to the public, thereby creating a seamless transit experience for the traveler.
The project is divided into two phases. The first phase focuses on expanding services OCWCOG currently offers to Non-Emergent Medical Transportation (NEMT) clients, including transportation drive training and travel training. The second phase involves a centralized information portal, real time bus information availability, and a mobile ticketing application.
Stakeholders (included below) comprise the working group. More information on the project, including meeting materials is available below.
