Route profiles provide a snapshot into each route that PVTA operates. This includes information on where a route operates, the ridership levels, the cost to operate and the demographics of the individuals utilizing the route. The route profiles utilize data from a ranger of sources including surveys, census data and internal PVTA tracking mechanisms. The route profiles also identify the service improvements made to the route since FY14 (June 30, 2015).
