Annual Bus Ridership Hits All-Time Peak

Agency reached record 9.7 million boardings in 2014

RIVERSIDE, CA — January 21, 2015 — With 10 of the last 12 months breaking ridership records, the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) announced today that its buses carried an unprecedented number of boardings in 2014.

A new report shows RTA buses carried more than 722,000 customers in December. Those numbers, coupled with the all-time record breaking month of October, brought RTA's annual total to 9.7 million boardings, a record for the 38-year-old agency. RTA's previous record was set a year ago when buses handled 9.3 million passenger trips.

"Each of these boardings represents a unique trip by a veteran or senior citizen headed to an appointment, or someone going to class, to a full-time job or to visit family or friends," said RTA Chairman of the Board Andrew Kotyuk. "These numbers are remarkable, and we are committed to continuing our efforts to give people a reason to ride."

Indeed, RTA continues to make improvements by boosting connectivity between routes, enhancing service to schools and Metrolink stations, and extending service to growing communities and popular destinations. Ridership is also getting a charge from Go-Pass and U-Pass programs at area colleges, including Cal Baptist University, La Sierra University, Moreno Valley College, Mt. San Jacinto College, Riverside City College and UC Riverside.
