COTA ridership continues to climb
Posted by Tim Doulin on April 18, 2008
More people appear to be riding the bus. Central Ohio Transit Authority says ridership is up 6.8 percent so far this year. Over a rolling 12-month period ending the middle of April, ridership is up 3.8 percent.
Higher gas prices and COTA’s bus service expansion is driving the increase, COTA believes. Ohio State University students also are riding the bus more, COTA said.
