Published: Expires: 12/14/2011
The DTA transported 101,074 U-PASS riders in October – the highest monthly total since September of 2008 when 99,392 rides were generated. The record-breaking U-PASS ridership for October included 76,713 rides at UMD, 16,449 rides at Lake Superior College (LSC), 5,169 rides at the College of St. Scholastica (CSS), and 2,743 rides at University of Wisconsin, Superior (UWS).
U-PASS ridership has increased steadily since 2000 and accounts for nearly 12 percent of the DTA’s over-all ridership during the same time period. However, during fall and spring semesters, U-PASS ridership accounts for nearly 20 percent of DTA’s system-wide ridership.
The U-PASS Program was established at UMD in 2000, with CSS and LSC joining in 2001 and UWS in 2007.
