Bend Area Transit, in cooperation with the City of Bend, the Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization, the U.S. Forest Service, Mt. Bachelor and Central Oregon Interagency Council (COIC) have received almost a million dollar grant from the Federal Transit Administration's Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program.  The money will be used to provide alternative transportation on federal lands.  This grant will augment a matching $200,000 from Mt. Bachelor for the projects.  The grant will allow the continuation of the Mt. Bachelor Shuttle , and help produce alternate ways for citizens to access the Deschutes National Forest using means other than personal vehicles.  According the Dave Rathbun, President and G.M. of Mt. Bachelor, this is an outstanding example of the public and private coordination to provide transportation alternatives.
