About the Data

Ridership numbers are collected via automatic passenger counters installed onboard vehicles and verified by periodic manual checks. Ridership numbers are submitted monthly to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and are considered preliminary. Numbers are subject to change.

Figures are represented as riders per day.
