Ridership increases by 17% in April(05/15/2012)
RVTD experienced a 16.9% increase in April 2012 fixed-route ridership compared to March 2012. Ridership totaled 120,528 in April setting a new record for ridership in the past 10 years. Even during the 2008 'fuel crisis' with gas prices nearing $5 per gallon RVTD's ridership reached below this mark seeing a peak of 111,118 in October of that year.
RVTD added later evening hours and Saturday service on April 2, 2012 and the spike in ridership is attributed to this service increase. Typically new service takes effect after a period of 3-6 months. RVTD anticipates the ridership will continue to grow during the spring and summer.
Thanks for riding RVTD!!!
