(WTVR) - Do you drive to work or catch the bus?

A USA Today report says there was near record ridership in the first 3 months of the year in at least a dozen cities.

Ridership continued to increase even in cities that cut back on services because of budgets.

The reason for the increase?

A mild winter, more people returning to work and higher gas prices.
