Increase of riders on Northstar Rail

Thursday, Metro Transit released information that there is an increase in ridership, that may be due to increased gas prices, the Star Tribune reports.
According to the St. Cloud Times in January, February, and March, riders rode the train more than 146,000 times.
Within the first 3 months of 2011, the 19.5 million rides represent a 2 percent increase from this same time a year ago, the Star Tribune reports.
According to the St. Cloud Times, Northstar began operating in 2009.
"We're off to a very encouraging start in 2011," Metro Transit General Manager Brian Lamb told the Star Tribune. "Rising gas prices have certainly played a role in encouraging new customers to give transit a try."
