VB WAVE Ridership Data FY19-FY21

Official Ridership Data including Route 35 from HRT.

Route 35 did not operate in FY20. Ridership in FY21 seems fairly strong considering everything that’s happened since Covid19 hit.

Maybe HRT & City of VB will market Route 35 more in the Bayfront area as it seems most are not familiar with how great Route 35 is for locals.
