By The Numbers
Counties and cities are considering money for Ozark Regional Transit as the group attempts to take over its management services and increase services to riders. Governments are being asked to contribute 20 percent of revenue from the new state highway tax. Cities confirming their commitment are:
• Bentonville: $123,000 in 2013 to 125,757
• Fayetteville: $296,000 in 2013 to $300,000*
• Rogers: $123,000 in 2013 to $199,367
• Springdale: $211,000 to 248,646
- Fayetteville is the only city to give more than the requested 20 percent.
