SEAGO is conducting a study to determine if new bus routes linking Douglas, Bisbee, Sierra Vista, and Benson would help people travel throughout Cochise County.
Currently, public transit in Cochise County includes services in Benson (Benson Area Transit), Bisbee (Bisbee Bus), and Douglas (Douglas Rides), as well as the City of Sierra Vista’s Vista Transit. The only existing intercity route links Douglas and Bisbee.
SEAGO wants to know if there is demand for new routes that would expand service from Douglas and Bisbee to Sierra Vista, and possibly add a new route linking Sierra Vista with Benson. We are also exploring ways to coordinate with private transportation operators serving both the U.S. and Mexico.
The goal is to create a plan that truly meets the needs of the community, improving quality of life for people who travel to and from cities within Cochise County.
