Transit Ridership Numbers Up in Idaho

Transit Ridership Numbers Up in Idaho: "Boise, Idaho, 3/14/2012 — The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) released national transit ridership numbers this week indicating the second highest annual ridership since 1957.  In Idaho, ridership has increased consistently and averaged a jump of 9.3% from 2009 to 2011, as reported by the Idaho Transportation Department – Division of Transportation Performance.

Looking at 2011, Idaho’s 2.7% increase from 2010 is greater than the one year national average increase of 2.3%. “There is no doubt the need for public transit continues to grow,” said Heather Wheeler, CTAI Executive Director, “and as gas prices increase, ridership will rise even more.”"
