Ozark Regional Transit is offering free rides for the holiday season.

Bus fare for all fixed-route transit buses will be free of charge from Monday, Dec. 19 through Friday, Dec. 23.

Other services, including demand-response and paratransit rides, are not included in the promotion.

Transit offices will be closed Dec. 23 and Dec. 30, but routes will still be in service on both days.

All routes will be closed with no service on Dec. 26 and Jan. 2, with the exception of the new Commuter Express route, which begins Monday, Jan. 2.

The Commuter Express is a 55-seat, wi-fi-equipped, coach-style bus that will shuttle passengers from the Northwest Arkansas Mall in Fayetteville to the Walmart Home Office area in Bentonville.
