Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

Cap­i­tal Metro, whose rev­enue from the Uni­ver­sity of Texas is grow­ing more slowly than the costs of pro­vid­ing shut­tle buses for UT, has steadily cur­tailed ser­vice hours for the shut­tle routes. In turn, yearly shut­tle rid­er­ship has fallen by 2.1 mil­lion since 2004. UT rid­er­ship of non­shut­tle Cap­i­tal Metro buses has in­creased by 700,000, which means that an­nual UT rid­er­ship has fallen about 1.4 mil­lion since 2004. As shut­tle ser­vice hours have fallen by 16.3 per­cent since 2004 . . .
