Eagle Point Studies Option for Bus Service from RVTD
Eagle Point officials and the Rogue Valley Transportation District are studying a plan to extend bus service to that city. An April study determined it would cost up to $236,000 a year to provide service to Eagle Point and expand the service in White City to serve Rogue Community College.
Southern Oregon University is conducting a survey to see if local residents have any appetite for increasing property taxes by 17 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation to fund the bus service. The survey should be completed by the end of the year.
The Eagle Point taxes would raise about $90,000 annually with the rest of the funding coming from fares and grants.
