LOGAN (AP) — The ridership of the Cache Valley Transit District is continuing to grow.

The district reports a record-breaking week occurred from Aug. 27 to Sept. 1 with an increase of more than 6,900 riders over the same period in 2007.

District officials say they're having a hard time meeting demand. Last week, bus drivers reported having to leave more than 100 people behind at different stops because buses were at capacity.

Todd Beutler, general manager of the CVTD, says the growth is likely due to Utah State University students returning to school, as well as residents wanting relief from high gas prices.
