MBTA orange line train copy2 A trend on the T continued in July as more people were riding the MBTA compared to the same month in 2010. 

Average weekday ridership across the MBTA system increased by 6.4% in July compared to July 2010 and totaled 1.283 million unlinked passenger trips per weekday. 

MBTA GM Rich Davey says with 6 of 7 months in 2011 showing increases compared to the same month last year, the T is trending toward record-breaking ridership numbers for the year.   Davey points to economic growth and continuing high fuel prices as causes for the increases.

Ridership growth was seen across the board in July, including bus, subway, and commuter rail.  The Red, Orange, and Blue line heavy rail subways saw a particularly strong month with a ridership jump of 8.4%.
