The proposed changes offer several benefits to the regional system:
- Retiming of Community Connector routes to a 90-minute cycle time
- Prineville – Redmond – Bend connection on a single bus
- Addition of Metolius and Culver stops on Madras to Redmond runs and deviated fixed-route in Madras and Warm Springs
- Addition of a Community Connector direct route between Sisters and Bend

I ride Route 24 on the 7:22a.m. to 7:53a.m. route between Redmond and Bend, and I’ve been late to work due to traffic a few times. Yet the new route 24 is starting 3 minutes later (7:25a.m.) and getting to Bend only 2 minutes later than normal (7:55a.m.). This will be very difficult for the driver to do with the amount of traffic that goes into Bend at that time. This is going to be very irritating to riders if they miss the 8:00a.m. buses in Bend. Especially since the buses in Bend will not wait for the commuter bus.
I have a flexible job for my start time but with the inconsistency of the service time to Bend I’m considering no longer using public transit. For instance one morning Route 24 had left the Redmond Hub was about 4 blocks away and was called back. The result of this a whole bus load of people did not make it to WORK on time.
So glad CET is adding a route between Bend & Sisters. When are we going to get one between Bend & Sunriver? Even with a stop at the HDM for tourists. We have been needing this for years & years.
Nice ideas, but the presentation doesn’t open after downloading on MS Edge or Google Chrome.
