LARAMIE, Wyo. - The number of people riding on University of Wyoming shuttle buses has increased dramatically this semester.

Statistics kept by UW Transit and Parking Services show there were more than 24,000 riders the first week of class. That is a 41 percent increase from the first week of 2011.

The biggest increase in riders was on the Union Express shuttle from the 30th and Willett park-and-ride lot.

Transit and Parking Services manager Paul Kunkel attributes part of the increase on that route to the opening of the Bison Run Village and Grove apartments.
