Bus ridership in GF on pace for record

GRAND FORKS – Grand Forks officials say bus ridership in the city is on pace to set an all-time record.

City spokesman Dale Bergman said there should be more than 375,000 riders by the end of the year if the current trend holds up.

There were about 329,000 riders last year.

Bergman said the increase is due in large part to a jump in the number of adults who are riding the bus.

More than 133,000 adults have boarded buses this year, compared to about 110,000 for all of last year.
