BATON ROUGE- A commuter bus service between Baton Rouge and New Orleans has been extended for another year.

The state says LA Swift received a $3 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration. The service will be funded by the grant and a passenger charge of $5 each way.

The service began in late October 2005 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. State officials say the service averages about 10,500 riders per month.

LA Swift offers several stops in Baton Rouge, Gonzales, Kenner, LaPlace, New Orleans and Sorrento.
