What argument? I’m not arguing that COTA shouldn’t expand later hours for routes that serve students.
I was just pointing out that OSU foots the COTA bill for the students, not the tiny fee they pay.
Average Student Fare per Ride: $0.94
Average Rider Fare per Ride: $0.79
%Trips made by Students: 9.7%
%Revenue made by Students: 11.5%
Note: the numbers may be mixing years. Students were based on Sept 2010 – Sept 2011 and general COTA was based on 2009.
It seems like a good partnership because OSU is a large employment center .January 10, 2013 3:36 pm at 3:36 pm #527495

That article is full of misinformation, poor research, and incorrectly drawn conclusions. Pretty much standard for The Lantern these days.January 11, 2013 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #527498
Does anyone know what bus stop removal does besides shortening commute trip? I mean does it do anything for COTA financially?February 15, 2013 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #527499

I wonder if this “evaluation” comes as a consequence of their desire to spread further into the suburbs.February 15, 2013 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #527501

No, its simply a desire to improve the sometimes horribly unreliable/slow service along High Street.February 25, 2013 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #527502
