Public transportation is alive and thriving in Valparaiso. Tayler Wegrzyn told the Times that "People are starting to realize it's here to stay."
Ridership on the V-Line is up 23.5 percent from 2012, topping a little over 124-thousand riders in 2013. The daily average on the three routes is 340 riders, according to the article. In addition to that, Wegrzyn says the city is constantly improving the service, recently adding a bus tracking app so riders can tell where the buses are any time.
