SilverLine_0174 The average daily ridership on MBTA buses set a record in August.

The average of 390,000 daily riders on MBTA buses in August is the highest monthly average on record.  System-wide, average weekday ridership for August 2010 increased by 4.5% over August 2009, the largest jump since October 2008.   An average of more than 1.25 million passenger trips were made each weekday in August.   It also marked the sixth consecutive month of system-wide ridership increases. 

MBTA General Manager Richard Davey says the record bus ridership reflects numerous improvements to the bus system, including the availability of real-time bus arrival information, the extension of Silver Line service from Washington Street to South Station, and the deployment of new, 60-foot long buses on the busy Rt. 28, serving Roxbury and Mattapan.
