BEND, OR -- The Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council will upgrade 56 Bend bus stops, to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Judy Watts, with COIC, tells KBND News the ADA pads complete the final phase of last year's transit expansion. “It particularly helps our riders who are using any type of mobility device, which includes walkers, wheelchairs, other devices of that nature.” She adds, “This is a very stable, flat surface for transit riders to be able to use to enter and exit the bus safely.”

 

Funds for the project come from the state department of transportation via local counties. 
Ten benches and two shelters will also be added to the Bend system. And, Crook and Jefferson counties will get two new Dial-a-Ride buses to replace outdated vehicles. 
 
The entire project will be done by the end of September.
