A few factoids that didn’t get to me in time for Monday’s Whatcom Transit piece, courtesy of WTA spokesperson Maureen McCarthy:
- 50% of WTA’s overall ridership is on these GO Lines.
- “The cost for banners, shelters, shelter graphics and stop signs was approximately $250,000. There was also a budget for advertising and promotion, but the major costs of implementation were increased service hours and the $250K above.”
- A survey shows that 37% of riders on GO lines are choice riders, who say they would otherwise drive alone.
