OC Transpo is experiencing a small increase in ridership this year, signalling to management the transit service is back on stable ground.
“I wouldn’t focus on up or down,” general manager John Manconi said Wednesday after a transit commission meeting.
“I would focus on the downward trend (being) over. It appears to be over and I think that’s good for everybody in the city and it’s good for our transit plans. There’s a month that it’s zero (increase) – that’s better than where we were. We were sliding downwards. That’s what’s positive in the numbers we have seen so far.”http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/transpo-management-cautious-about-ridership-uptick
