FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — Veterans will now be able to ride free on Ozark Regional Transit buses.

The recent fire at the ORT facilities brought to light many stories of stress and worry by ORT passengers, said Jeff Hatley, ORT spokesperson.

With the approval of the ORT board, U.S. veterans will now be able to ride for free on the fixed-route services. Veterans must show a valid Veterans Administration ID.

The free fare will begin on Monday (June 5).

The policy is for the fixed-route buses only. Pre-scheduled para-transit and demand/response models will remain at the regular fare.

Hatley said ORT hopes this policy will help veterans in accessing all services available without transportation concerns.
