Charleston - Morgantown Bus Service Ridership Grows
A new bus service between Charleston and Morgantown is becoming a popular choice for travelers.
Cindy Fish with the state Division of Transit says ridership on the I-Ride 79 bus service is growing daily. In October, 763 passengers, or about 25 per day, rode the buses.
Fish tells The State Journal that the bus service is seeing a lot of repeat business.
The Division of Public Transit launched the I-Ride 79 service on July 1. The service includes stops in Clendenin, Flatwoods, Weston, Clarksburg and Fairmont.
Baron Bus Lines operates the buses for the state. Barons vice president John Goebel tells the newspaper that the service attracts a diverse group of riders, including college students and senior citizens.
