Ridership on the Metro buses in Sartell continues its steady increase.
Steve Hennes, a Sartell council member who is on the St. Cloud area Metro Bus Board, told the council at its Monday meeting ridership increased by 1,100 more riders during the month of April compared to April of last year. On a couple of other Metro bus routes in the greater St. Cloud area, ridership has remained flat or even decreased, Hennes noted.
“Things are going very well now,” Hennes said of the Sartell bus service that began nearly 10 years ago.
