Bad Economy Helps Palm Tran Set Ridership Record

News

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Economists will tell you that fewer people are driving and more people are taking public transportation thanks to fuel prices — and the latest numbers from PalmTran seem to suggest that’s true.
The Palm Beach County Transportation Agency reports an all time record was set in October with a total monthly ridership of 1,003, 356. That is the first time ever that Palm Tran has exceeded one million passenger trips in any one month. The average weekly ridership was 40,843. That was also a record.
Looking back a year, the total ridership for October 2010 was 962,039. The year-to-year numbers represent a 4.29% increase.
