Ridership is increasing as more people head back to the office and spend more time out and about for gatherings, sporting events, concerts and summer fun. Over the last few months, we’ve seen 25% more boardings than we did during the same time in 2022. That’s according to Community Transit’s RAD Team (RAD officially stands for Research and Analytics Division, but we think they are all pretty rad!) With more people choosing transit to get around, you’ll be in good company as you plan your summer travels! Can you guess which route has even higher ridership today than it did before the pandemic? Watch Community Transit Live to find out the answer to this question, and learn how the RAD Team’s work shapes the future of our service, especially when light rail comes to Snohomish County.
