MBTA Blue Line NEW Cars at Maverick 17NOV09 The MBTA's total average weekday ridership jumped 5% in March 2011 compared to March 2010.  It is the biggest month-to-month increase since October 2008. 

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.

Join the 1.287 million and ride the T today.  Visit the MBTA on the web at www.mbta.com.
