Although it has only been running for a month, rider response has been positive, said Jerry Jones, who drives all four 52U routes Monday through Thursday.
Jones added the route is still new and many people don’t know about it yet. “I’m sure as soon as more people hear about it, more people will ride it,” he said.
As for the future of the 52U, Cone said this route is just like any other. If its passenger feedback is positive and steady ridership continues, the route will endure.
Huss said spring quarter, when ridership generally drops, will be the true test.
