* NOTE: In FY 2007/2008, ferry ridership was impacted by the U.S. Coast Guard-required annual dry dockings for inspection of vessels. The M.V. Del Norte was in dry dock from January 28 through March 4, 2008, and the M.V. Mendocino was in dry dock from March 31 through July 15, 2008. The M.V. Mendocino dry dock was much longer than normal as new engines were installed.

GGT Bus Ridership & Gas Price Comparisons

The correlation between gas prices and bus ridership is evident when comparing the change in ridership from Fiscal Year to Fiscal Year (Column D) and the change in gas prices from the current month to previous month (Column G). Looking at those two columns, when gas prices go down, bus ridership goes down and when gas prices go up, bus ridership goes up (with exceptions: February, September, October and December 2008 when gas prices decreased and ridership increased).

Column A

GGT Bus Ridership (includes Marin Local service)

Column B

Monthly Ridership

Column C

Monthly Ridership - Compared to Same Month in
Previous Year

Column D

Column E
