> Can a student get on a bus in Madras to attend classes at COCC in Redmond or a patient ride that same bus to a medical appointment in Bend?
It is not possible today, but a group of people hope it will become reality. The Mobility Consortium is looking at using existing transportation resources to create a regional system of public transportation.
The Madras Community Action Team is having a meeting on March 15 at noon in their office to bring Jefferson County into the conversation. Discussion will include transportation needs with a goal to make it easier and affordable for everyone to travel back and forth between Warm Springs, Madras and Bend.
Anyone with an interest in transportation is invited to attend the meeting at the Community Action Team office, 161 S.E. Fifth St., Madras. For additional information call 475-0301.
