The Partnership to End Poverty awards the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council and Cascades East Transit $25,000 to establish a fixed bus route in Redmond.

 

Jason Carr with the Partnership says the money will help a lot of people in Redmond who are seeking to make a better life for themselves.  "Our goal has always been to create community infrastructure that help low-income populations. And the reality is: if you're low income and don't own a car, or have a way to efficiently get around town; you're going to lose that access to education, that access to the Employment Department and other important services, so this is one of the reason why we feel it was important to make a contribution to this project."

 

The route will connect COCC's Redmond Campus, the Department of Human Services, the Employment Department and NeighborImpact and out to the airport.

 

Carr says this will be the first local fixed route service in Central Oregon outside of Bend.
