Despite traffic problems, parking shortages, and sky-rocketing gas prices, Robins Air Force Base says it wasn't getting enough riders on its on-base bus system.
That's why the Round Robins Express, which shuttles employees around the base for free, will make its last run Thursday.
Base officials say it wasn't getting the ridership it wanted.
"Taking everything into consideration -- mission requirements, effective use of our personnel -- we took it as a decision -- a business decision," says John Pugh, who helped head up the green initiative.
Pugh says the high-occupancy-vehicle entrance has already moved from Gate 12 to Gate 15 (the Air National Guard Gate) in order to free up personnel.
Three months ago, the base launched Round Robins alongside the "BIRD" shuttle, the Macon Transit Authority-operated route from Macon to Robins Air Force Base.
