City of Bend Routes 8 and 9 Design and Implementation

CET worked collaboratively with the City of Bend to design bus stop locations and hired Century West Engineering to design the bus stops and ensure ADA compliance. Funds to plan and implement the new routes are provided by the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund.
