Grants Pass, Ore. -- Starting in September a new bus route could be making it easier for many Rogue Valley residents to get around.

For just $2.00 a ticket you will be able to get from Grants Pass to Medford and vice versa.

The Daily Courier reported that the Josephine Community Transit will have five runs a day with stops in Rogue River and Gold Hill when riders request it.

People in the area said It'll be helpful.

"Would be really helpful because there's a lot of people like meĀ that are on disability and we don't have transportation to go to and from," said Eugene Whitehurst.

"I think It'd be awesome. I walk everywhere I go and I'd finally get to go to Medford," said Donna Keith.

The new route is possible thanks to a $450,000 grant.
