YAKIMA, Wash.-- Yakima Public Transit is listening to your concerns. It comes from a yearly survey where anyone can rate and critique the system. KIMA got the results of the survey. The top three reasons people say they use transit is because they are disabled, elderly or don't have a car. About 80% were willing to support a small tax increase to improve service. The survey reported bus service is most needed in the morning and afternoon. Bus riders have their own opinions on that.

"I would like to see the buses run a little more often instead of almost like every hour and longer, they stop running at like 6-something," said Rudy Peralez, who rides the bus almost every day. "If they would last longer it would be a lot better."

Yakima Transit says changing bus routes can easily be done if there's money for it. The cost to ride the bus will be going up next month.
