OUT buses may get fresh look

The Oxford-University Transit buses may get some sprucing up.

The OUT commission met Wednesday for its regular meeting at City Hall and discussed looking at new designs for the exterior of the buses.

The commission is looking to possibly upgrade the buses’ colors and have a new logo designed.

The members are seeking the help of Hunt Marketing Firm to come up with some ideas and proposals on how to update the buses’ exteriors. A representative from Hunt will return to the August meeting with some options.

OUT manager Ron Biggs reported that ridership for June increased from the pervious year. This year, 17,376 people rode the bus compared to 14,722 in June 2015 and 15,663 in June 2014.
