Bus ridership up 23 percent in Fargo-Moorhead
FARGO - Whether it's because they're trying to save a dime or trying to save the Earth, nearly 1.7 million Fargo-Moorhead residents hopped on a bus in 2008.
The year-end Metro Area Transit figures released show 1,691,241 people took the bus, that's 317,000 more than in 2007.
Transit officials peg the 23 percent increase in ridership largely to riders trying to cut expenses during a time of high gas prices.
