Get ready for more RTA trouble

Postby Bret Callentine » Tue Oct 21, 2008 7:36 am

Not that I'm keeping detailed numbers, but as the gas prices drop back down, I'm noticing a drop in ridership (at least on the 26).

With the fare increases due to hit in the next few weeks, I would expect to see that trend increase.

However, given that they couldn't foresee an increase in the ridership and costs when gas prices went up, I'm guessing that they will be just as shocked when ridership goes back down.

I just hope their new contract for diesel came with a clause to account for when fuel drops well below the negotiated set rate.
