Sun Metro’s numbers for the first quarter of the 2019 fiscal year are out:
Ridership fell another 5.6% from last year’s lows.
Yet they stubbornly continue to show a goal of more riders this year than last.
If somehow they reached their goal they would still be 19% below where they were back in 2012.
Their cost per trip for the quarter went up 21% from the same period last year.
Isn’t it time that we rethink how our bus system operates?
We deserve better
