CityBus Adding to Fleet

CityBus of Greater Lafayette is updating its fleet of vehicles in the next few months.

Board members approved a resolution to purchase three buses at a meeting Wednesday night.

General Manager Marty Sennett says the buses are “articulated,” meaning they bend in the middle.

He says they are longer than the standard 40-foot buses, and can carry more passengers.

Sennett expects to replace older buses in the fleet with the newer models by early March.

Wednesday night’s meeting also included a presentation of the results of CityBus’ 2011 passenger satisfaction survey.

More than 90-percent of the 640 respondents indicated they were using CityBus service to get to school or work.
