June 2019 - In December 2017, the SouthEastern Arizona Governments Organization (SEAGO) was awarded a transit planning grant by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to conduct a Willcox Transit Feasibility Study. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of a public bus service (FTA Section 5311) that would serve Willcox and possibly its surrounding communities of Bowie, Cochise, Kanas Settlement, Pearce/Sunsites and Winchester Heights. The population for the expanded service area is 10,237 people.
October 2017 - In 2014, the SEAGO Regional Transportation Coordination Plan was updated. During the planning process the SEAGO Regional Coordination Council identified the need to “develop intercity bus service that links the public transit systems of Benson, Bisbee, Douglas, and Sierra Vista and also provides access to national transportation providers (Greyhound and Amtrak) that have stops in Benson” as the top priority to address regional transit service gaps.
