Across the country, public transportation is seeing an increased number
of riders. In 2011, CU Transit Services provided 1.5 million rides. CU
buses drove 1.2 million miles and operated over 85,000 hours to provide
transportation services to our community. 

Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA),
Communities in Motion Week is observed in communities across the United
States. It emphasizes the fact that public transportation assists people
and communities in a wide variety of ways.
