·  Rising fuel prices have increased usage and support of public transportation in record numbers as of March 2011, according to Triangle Transit.

·  Ridership has exceeded 2010 levels, up 21% since March 2010. January and February 2011 ridership numbers also surpassed 2010 levels, showing that Triangle Transit’s service is an accepted alternative to personal transportation in our region.

·  In addition, Triangle Transit users can now plan their trips using Google Transit and have access to Wi-Fi on the buses, two newly added benefits.

·  Jeff Merritt, Chair of Triangle Transit’s Board of Trustees, confirmed that “In today’s economy, we can help households cope with rising energy prices. Commuters and riders using transit find it provides reliable, safe and friendly service.”
