OC Transpo ridership climbed slightly in the first part of this year, despite complaints about delayed or missing buses and the fact LRT still isn't up and running.

According to the latest numbers, there were roughly 34.5 million rides on OC Transpo in the first four months of 2019, up slightly from 34.4 million in the same time frame on 2018.

Generally, transit ridership has been in a decline since hitting a peak of 103.5 million rides in 2011. Last year the overall ridership was 96.5 million, where it has been for roughly the last four years.
