Hi,
My name is Sara and I'm from Italy.
I'm planning to move to Rogers in the next few months, in order to study english at Spring International Language Center, in Fayetteville. I don't like driving and I was wondering if there's any bus or trains that connect Rogers to Fayetteville. English classes are supposed to start around 8 am and finish at 3pm.
Another question; what about electric bikes? I was thinking to buy an electric buy and drive it from Rogers to Fayetteville using the bike trail. What do you think? I hope you can help me.
-Sara

I would advise you to live in Fayetteville if you are going to go to school in Fayetteville. I have a feeling the transit systems are not what you are used to in Italy.

I think it would be too far to ride an electric bike from Rogers to Fayetteville. It looks to be about 20 miles. And I don't know that you could actually even buy one around there....electric bikes are not widely used in the US.

Is there actually a bike trail system that goes all the way from Rogers to Fayetteville? If so, I think you would still be dealing with a lot of traffic in some places, besides the distance.

Now, I don't actually live there and could be wrong about this. I just saw that no one was answering and wanted to give you a word of caution about your plan, and also to let you know that if you'll be patient someone will eventually come along who knows more details than I do about the situation in Rogers/Fayetteville.

Best wishes for your time in Arkansas.

Just FYI:


The Northwest Arkansas Razorback Regional Greenway - YouTube

They are still working on the trail. I don't believe that they plan on allowing motorized vehicles on the trail. Many greenways do not.
