Are LRT construction detours finally taking a toll on bus riders?

Bus riders might be finally fed up with road construction, changed routes and detours affecting transit schedules.

OC Transpo recorded 48 million customer trips in the first half of 2017, which is 1.5 million fewer trips compared to the same period in 2016.

According to Transpo’s tracking system, ridership has remained steady during the traditionally busiest times of day, but it has dropped off in the evening hours.

Is it possible that longtime transit customers are choosing Uber? Are transit customers riding their bikes instead?
