Riverside gets shout-out for improved service

Riverside* got a shout-out for improved transit service from APTA.
"Expanded and improved public transit services also played a role in attracting more riders,” said Melaniphy.  “For example, the transit agencies in Albany (NY), Denver (CO), Indianapolis (IN), Riverside (CA), and Salt Lake City (UT) saw increased ridership due to greater service.”
Even though bus ridership is down nationwide, ridership is up out here in the IE-- where we're all buses all the time. Ridership is down in Los Angeles, even, but record numbers of Inlanders are taking the bus.

*Take into account the Standard MSA Disclaimer, which makes this more like an IE shout-out.
