MBTA Blue Line NEW Cars at Maverick 17NOV09The MBTA announced that ridership topped 400 million for the year ending on June 30, 2012.  Average weekday ridership during Fiscal Year 2012 jumped by 5.7 percent over the previous year.  There were an average of 1.312 million passenger trips per weekday, the first time that daily ridership averaged more than 1.3 million for an entire fiscal year.  

Ridership increased across the MBTA system.  Bus ridership grew 5.9%, subway by 5.2% and trolleys by 8%.  Total annual ridership for Fiscal Year 2012 was approximately 400,185,000. 

Weekday ridership for the month of June 2012 also increased by 1.5% compared to June 2011, the 17th consecutive month of ridership growth.  That is the longest such streak in MBTA history.  

Acting MBTA General Manager Jonathan Davis said the unprecedented ridership levels are the result of the state’s continued economic growth, lower unemployment rates, the availability of real-time information for bus and train customers, and an overall improvement in MBTA service reliability.
