To follow on the the post listed below: According to data provided by Valley Regional Transit to the Coalition for Public Transportation, total transit trips in the Boise urban area decreased 3% from 2004 (990,626 trips) to 2005 (960,341 trips). For Nampa (including intercounty service to Boise) trips decreased over 10% (66,564 trips down to 59,709) .
The question remains, how to reverse the trend and increase ridership. I participate in a few groups working to this end - COMPASS of Idaho and the Coalition for Public Transportation. I'll keep you posted.
