What's New with BAT?

Welcome to "Outreach October"

Starting October 1st, BAT will be looking for your feedback! All of our fixed-route services will have opportunities for riders to fill out an on-board ridership survey and we will be contacting all BAT Lift passengers as well. If you currently do not use the service but wish to provide your feedback, you can provide input using our online survey as well. Accessible formats can be requested by calling 541-766-6700. Our surveys will wrap up on November 1st. 

Interested in helping your community?

Benton County is looking for individuals to serve on its Special Transportation Advisory Committee (STAC). The STAC meets about twice per year to help BAT staff with decisions and to provide recommendations to the Board of Commissioners on issues that may impact seniors and individuals with disabilities. If you are interested in joining the STAC, please visit the STAC webpage or call our office (541-766-6700) for an application.
