Bus Ridership Survey

September 16, 1988|Clipboard researched by Susan Greene, Henry Rivero and Rick VanderKnyff / Los Angeles Times. Graphics by Doris Shields / Los Angeles Times

The Orange County Transit District (OCTD) conducted an On-Board Survey of its passengers on Nov. 17-20 and Nov. 24, 1987, during the morning runs. About 49,000 questionnaires were distributed on the District's fixed-route and Dial-a-Ride vehicles and more than 17,000 were returned by fixed-route passengers.

The chart below details the number of fixed-route daily riders per route on OCTD lines and shows a 9% increase since 1982, the year of the last survey. The route numbers are not consecutive due to service restructuring and discontinuation of certain lines. Also, gaps are left between route numbers to allow for the creation of new lines as needed.
