Mass Transit - A23

Despite the short-term decline in overall ridership, APTA included three examples of bus ridership growth in both small
and large cities.
The Central Ohio Transit Authority in
Columbus, Ohio, saw a 3 percent increase
in ridership in 2018, providing nearly 19
million trips. APTA says one of the reasons
for this increase was the launch of COTA's
first Bus Rapid Transit line, CMAX, which
puts customers closer to 200,000 jobs,
two hospitals and three post-secondary
campuses. CMAX had a 17.5 percent increase over fixed-route ridership covering
the same area in the year prior. COTA also
launched C-pass, an employer-funded
pass program that provides transit to
downtown Columbus workers at no cost
to them.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) played an important supporting role in Utah Transit
Authority's 4.7 percent ridership increase
on its commuter rail system, FrontRunner.
APTA credits the increase in part to the

"Public transportation
continues to offer
great value to a
community and
its residents as it
provides access to
jobs, health care,
schools, and local
businesses."
-Paul P. Skoutelas,

inception of a new high-frequency BRT
route called UVX that takes riders to two
FrontRunner stations.  Launched in August 2018, UVX was rapidly adopted by
riders and by the end of 2018 average

weekday ridership on UVX was almost
five times the ridership on the previous
routes that served the alignment.  
APTA's third example comes from
Foothill Transit in West Corvina, Calif.,
where the Foothill Transit Class Pass
Program has boosted ridership on all bus
lines serving four local college campuses.
APTA says the Class Pass is free or low cost
(funded by semester-based student fees)
for students and faculty at participating
campuses, allowing for unlimited rides
on board Foothill Transit local and Silver
Streak service.  
"Public transportation continues to
offer great value to a community and its
residents as it provides access to jobs,
health care, schools, and local businesses," said APTA President and CEO Paul P.
Skoutelas.  "As people have more transportation options than ever before, public
transportation systems around the country are experimenting with new programs
and services to attract new riders."
