EZ Rider Expecting Increase in Riders Due to High Gas Prices

Staff Report

Gas prices are steadily on the rise in the Basin.

Right now, the average price for a tank of unleaded will run you around $3.85, creeping ever closer to that $4 mark.

Fortunately, the local bus transit, EZ Rider, isn't worried.

The General Manager tells NewsWest 9, as gas prices rise so does ridership.

We're told EZ Rider will feel a slight pinch but it won't devastate the system.

As more people opt for the bus instead of their own car, they will need more drivers.

EZ Rider is looking for part time drivers to help out.
