The T reports a total of 1.287 million unlinked passenger trips per weekday during March.
Ridership grew by 6.9% on the Red, Orange, and Blue Lines heavy rail lines and 7.7% on the Green Line and and Mattapan Trolley light rail systems. Beginning in March, 19 additional three-car train trips were added weekdays on the Green Line. Bus ridership grew by 1.9%.
MBTA ridership has grown in six of the nine months beginning in July 2010, compared to the same month the previous year.
MBTA officials believe the ridership jump is likely a result of rising fuel prices along with modest economic growth and pent up demand plus improved on-time performance following the recent harsh winter.
