Fare increase affects ridership on J.T.S.
Transit Director, Dave Mumma, says the ridership decrease for the first six months of the year is 7.6% while the revenue increase is 6.8%. Mumma says the same thing happened the last time a fare increase was established.
Mumma says all of the routes suffered a drop in ridership with the extra service routes for the schools seeing a 14% loss. The Beloit / Janesville Express continues to be popular and only had a drop of about 2%.
