Transit is easy and free in Durango, Colorado

The Durango Herald 08/06/2011 | Easy and free: "'It's very convenient,' resident Florence King said of the free trolley service available along Main Avenue.

King, who moved to Durango from Gallup, N.M., a few years ago, has found that public transit here is free from the negative image and complicated schedules and fees that plague other cities' transit systems.

Whether it's these reasons, the economy or both, one thing is clear: Usage of Durango's public transit service is up dramatically.

Since the City Council voted in 2009 to make the Main Avenue trolley free, ridership numbers have seen double-digit increases."
