STO is leaving people behind...
The number of overcrowded buses has risen 70% compared to last year.
The 200 was the most overcrowded (Shocker) 24, 59, 100, and 400 also "busy."
The stop bypassed the most was in Ottawa "close to Parliament Hill near Wellington and Bank Streets." I'm assuming Wellington/bank stop.
STO explains that its ridership is up 15% since January.
STO will try to maximize its resources during rush hour and optimize its articulated buses.
From 2020-2024, STO plans to purchase 153 new buses, some will replace older buses.
Well, at least their ridership isn't decreasing.
