Riders return to local transit service

Ridership on the Oxford University transit system is up 44 percent this month as students returned to the university. The system will also be purchasing a new GPS system, solar panels for bus stops and a security camera system due to American Recovery Reinvestment Act funds. (September 9, 2010, Page 1)

Transit system ready for students

Students aren’t back yet but the buses have kicked off their fall schedule. As of Monday, the complete routes have restarted including the reopening of the orange route which had been closed over the summer due to low ridership. July ridership was up with 12,725 riders compared to June’s 11,048. But with students returning to Oxford next week, Oxford University Transit Manager Ron Biggs expects the ridership to once again swell despite better than expected summer ridership. For more information, visit http://www.oxfordms.net/out/schedule.htm.

Buses’ routes scaled back

Bus service announces summer schedule

Beginning May 10, the Oxford University Transit public bus service will change several routes to accomodate what operators expect will be fewer riders this summer. The new routes will be in place until Aug. 7. For more information, visit www.oxfordms.net/out/schedule.htm (April 28, 2010, Page 12)
