Charlottetown’s transit system continues to set new records.
The T3 service set yet another one on Friday, Nov. 28, recording 1,730 passenger fares for the day.
The previous single-day record was set Sept. 24, 2012, with 1,677 passenger fares serviced.
The transit system started on Sept. 30, 2005 and has grown to be an important part of the community over the years.
“On our first day in 2005 we had 75 passenger fares,’’ said transit owner Mike Cassidy. “I remember being so excited on that first day and now, nine years later, with 1,730 passenger fares recorded in one single day, I can only say thank you to our customers, my staff and the elected officials who see the merit in providing public transportation within their community.’’
