Tramless Roosevelt Islanders Not Taking Red Bus to Manhattan - At Least on First Day of Availability

Roosevelt Island Red Bus Image from RIOC

RIOC President Steve Shane forwards the following statistics on first day Red Bus Ridership to Manhattan and Queens Plaza for Tramless Roosevelt Islanders.
Stats for 6/11/08:

From RI to Queens Plaza (6AM-9:30AM):
16 passengers 8 trips
From QP to RI (returns):
0 passengers 8 trips

From RI to Manhattan (10AM-2PM):
9 Passengers 5 trips

From Manhattan to RI (returns at 10:30 AM-2:30PM);\:
8 Passengers 5 trips

From RI to Manhattan (7PM-11PM)
9 Passengers 5 trips

From Manhattan to RI (returns at 7:30PM-11:30PM):
9 Passengers 5 trips

We shall see as the word spreads and/or sinks in. Hard to justify at
this level! An experiment.
These numbers reflect only the first day of service. Remember that many people did not know that the Red bus service to Manhattan existed because it was not part of RIOC's original transportation plan for the period of time that the Tram was out of service. It would be helpful to learn what the ridership numbers for the Red Bus were during previous Tramless occurrences.
