Hello Miriam


Bus patronage figures for these periods are available at section 3.3 of
Report 18.393, which can be found at:



Please note that this data includes passengers who transfer as separate
trips (we counted transfers separate trips  both before and after the July
15 changeover).


We expect that some of the growth is attributable to more transfers;
probably between 8,000 – 10,000 trips.
