Longview Transit ridership up with extended hours
Longview, TX — Extended hours and a slight tweaking of one route increased ridership on Longview Transit buses during January, Tequita Mumphrey reported to the public transportation advisory committee on Tuesday.
The buses run 6:15 a.m. to 7:10 p.m. Monday-Friday and 7:15 a.m. to 7:10 p.m. on Saturdays. An additional stop at Hillside, a seniors-only apartment complex, was added to Route One.
“We’d done a survey in 2010 and the main thing riders wanted was extended evening hours,” Mumphrey said. “It looks like it’s going to be a good deal all around.”
