This Just In

Big news from E. Susan Meyer (STA's CEO) who gave us this update at today's SRTC Board meeting: new numbers are out and STA's ridership growth is the highest among large urban transits in the state and more than triple the national average. In fact, ridership has increased 18% through August, compared to the same period in 2007. Way to go people, keep riding the bus!
