The Fremont City Council has decided to end bus service in the city this summer.

The council decided not to apply for state and federal grants that provide most of the funding for the service.

Bus service will continue until July 1st, when grant funding runs outs.

The council began considering whether to end the bus service after noting ridership declines for a couple years. The system carried just over 2,000 riders in the current year, which is down from nearly 2,500 riders in the 2011 to 2012 budget year.

Officials tried to vary the route but found little interest in the bus.

City staff plans to study other options for providing public transportation.
