DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Jule, Dubuque's transit system, saw a record number of riders in October. 

The Jule saw 51,542 rides this past month, a 16.5 percent increase from rides provided in October 2013.

The record-setting month is part of a larger trend that has seen Jule ridership increase 28 percent over the past five years.

They credit the increases this year to the crosstown Express service, new service areas and extended service hours.

They also attribute a large amount of that to the increase in monthly passes, which allows a rider to pay for a full month at a time, instead of paying each day. They say the number of riders who purchase passes has increased 200 percent since January.
