GRTC’s ridership up 23% year-over-year in March


We’ve got new ridership numbers (PDF) hot off the presses from GRTC’s board meeting today. The big news: Fixed-route ridership in March is up by 144,840 as compared to last March. That’s a 24.48% increase!

Some other interesting bits:

  • The number of One Ride Cash Passes sold is down 41.27%, which is probably a result of more folks transferring due to the new system design, taking advantage of all-day passes, and using the mobile app.
  • Paratransit, aka CARE service, is down by 8%.
  • The Pulse accounted for 32.78% of all rides in March (175,361).
