The Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority, meanwhile, has bus routes that serve Franklin, Bellingham and Medway. Ridership on those three routes grew from about 27,400 in 2011 to 29,700 in 2012.
Mary Basilone, the mobility manager for the authority, said local leaders and her agency saw a need to transport commuters, seniors, college students and others and started routes to meet that demand.
She said her agency would like to improve connections with other regional transit authorities and enhance night and weekend service, but it needs funding to do so.
She acknowledged there are competing interests for transportation money as state leaders work to improve bridges and roads in addition to public transit.
