VACAVILLE — The city’s public transit system, City Coach, received kudos to the tune of $232,000 recently from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
The funding is based on operating performance and efficiency in the past few years, according to a press release issued by the city. Ridership more than doubled over a seven-year period from 2006 to 2012 – the number of riders soared from 196,747 in 2006 to 446,109 in 2012.
The funding comes from a commission incentive program designed to financially reward transit agencies for striving to improve operating performance. The commission’s data show, within the Bay Area’s smaller transit operators, that City Coach is ranked No. 2 in efficiency.
