WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Use it or lose it.
Riders on Chambersburg Transit Authority buses that roll through Waynesboro and Washington Township every day have three months to increase their ridership numbers or see the service disappear from the communities, the authority's executive director said Wednesday.
Speaking before the Waynesboro Borough Council and about 20 residents, mostly seniors, Eva McKula said CTA officials have decided that ridership on the two local runs has to increase by 20 percent or the buses will be pulled back to Chambersburg.
"If we don't do it, the service will definitely have to go," McKula said. "This is the last shot."
Waynesboro is a co-partner with the township in the venture, said Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger. "If ridership doesn't go up we'll have to pull the plug," he said.
