I'm for rapid transit but I spoke at length to drivers who told me ridership is very low. We stopped at a beach campground on the way to Yachats and the driver waited for ten minutes or so, but he said he almost never picked up passengers there. It's a beautiful bus and trip, but if it's empty much of the time, it could be done with less financial and environmental impact, I expect. Someone should be taking a look at the actual numbers.

Does Lane County expect any federal transportation funds that can support these projects?
Mark Nystrom-Lane County, OR (he/him)
01:15:15
Yes--we will get some federal money. We are not sure where it will end up going. Lane County is actually hiring someone to help coordinate efforts.

Arica - ODOT has an EV lead in the innovative partnership group as well as Forth does lots of advocacy. Also for the north south bus line - try Connect Oregon - a grant program of ODOT to eliminate bottlenecks and last mile challenges. The new director of planning was promoted from the Climate office. Talking to ODOT about intercity transit north south would be a welcome idea if you can get to the transit group in the planning section. For active use paths for tourism and local movement connect with Sasha Vartanian At Lane County for active transit.
