Transit system recognized for its growth, performance

Even before the price of gasoline went up the Cache Valley Transit District was growing fast. General Manager Todd Beutler says last year the district celebrated 2 million trips and this year the numbers will be up substantially. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday, Beutler said he is pleased so many people use the system which is maxed out at certain times of the day. Board Chairman Todd Hogan said it was exciting recently when CVTD received the top award from the Federal Transit Agency’s Region 8. “And we were up against service providers like UTA and Denver’s service,” Hoggan explained. “We were measured on the increase of ridership over the last 10 years. “We were measured over the effectiveness and efficiency of transit services, considering the operating costs, and the magnitude of transit usage considering the overall population.” The CVTD is still fare-free and Beutler says another survey has shown that it is the most cost-efficient system at the present time.
