Proposed Route Changes
Pirate, Bulldog, and Crab Express are proposed to operate as deviated-routes, described in the previous tab, and have changes in their routing. Some locations will no longer be timepoints but will be eligible as deviated stops. See the details in the pink tab for each route.
Intracounty routes such as Timber Express and Cranberry Express would be eliminated. Service to Coquille and Myrtle Point, initially served by Timber Express would be provided by a combination of a new intercity route to Roseburg, a new South County route, and the Powers Stage route. Cranberry Express in the current system has very low ridership and is proposed to instead operate as a new South County intercity route connecting Bandon, Myrtle Point, Coquille, and Coos Bay/North Bend
Three new routes namely, South County Route, Roseburg route and Florence route have been proposed to operate to serve North Bend, Bandon, Myrtle Point, Coquille, Roseburg and Florence. The Roseburg route and Florence route already have funding for the first year.
