Transportation

Plan Before the Plan

NWA Daily

Our local transit provider based in Springdale is taking initiative amidst a growing place for public transportation.

  • Thinking ahead: After hiring a consultant last month for a new 10-year transit development plan, the Ozark Regional Transit Authority (ORT) is in the process of restructuring its board to establish a more unified purpose and articulation for its role in regional mobility.
  • Preparing for more: The ORT will restructure its board before any further steps are taken for the new development plan. However, the plan is projected to “improve and expand transit in Northwest Arkansas” as ridership levels increase due to local events like football games and cycling races.

Bentonville-based and woman-founded technology firm Stonehenge Technology Labs raised $2m in seed funding for its artificially intelligent commerce software. 

  • AI business tech: Stonehenge Technology Lab’s software program is for Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies and is called "Stopwatch." Six new investors, C-Suite executives in CPG as well as retail technology, put money toward Stopwatch. 
  • Right in the middle: Professionals experienced working for jet.com, Walmart, and Amazon are a part of the Stopwatch’s data engineering, digital retail and artificial intelligence team. The location of Stonehenge Technology Labs in NWA was intentional, so as to be close with its users to “deliver exactly what they need.”
