The Board also requested a first quarter usage report. The usage report has been prepared (Attachment A) and will be presented at the April 18, 2019, Board of Directors meeting.
The new 8: 00 a.m. run has resulted in an average ridership level of 13 passengers Monday through Thursday and 9 passengers on Fridays.

This overall upward trend in SRPR ridership and adequate numbers of riders utilizing the 8:00 a.m. run indicates that so far, the pilot 8:00 a.m. run is proving successful. Additionally, it is anticipated that ridership on this run will continue to increase in the coming months as this would follow the overall seasonal increase in ridership of the Park and Ride system. Staff recommends continuing the six-month pilot and reporting back to the Board in July.
Continue to provide the 8:00 am Woodlands Express run.
