As gasoline prices are the highest Central Ohio residents have seen in recent memory, and more cyclists hit the road and trails, COTA ridership continues to increase.
In January, ridership was at 1.29 million, an increase of 4.7 percent from January 2007, he said. In February, the transit authority clocked in more than 1.2 million rides, an increase of 190,195 rides overall from February 2007, he said.
COTA customers also took advantage of the transit authority’s Bike n’ Bus program in greater numbers in 2007, with 39,930 bike riders boarding the bus — a 9.52 percent increase over 2006.
