Local fares help support strong Morris Transit system


MORRIS -- On an average day, the Morris Transit system serves a broad cross-section of the community. From students to seniors, it's hard to quantify who uses the service most.

Since the city of Morris took over the transit system in 1975, ridership has steadily increased, from about 21,000 rides in a year in 1975 to a high of 63,725 rides in 2008.
