Metro ridership up over prior year

transitridershipchartMetro closed out FY13 on June 30, 2013 with ridership up across the board on MetroLink, MetroBus and Call-A-Ride for more than 47 million rides –  a 0.7 percent increase over the prior year and a 13 percent increase since FY10.  Metro is attributing some of this growth to higher gasoline prices and returning customers from 2009 service cuts.  The MetroBus system carries more than half of the passengers each year on the Metro transit system.
