MBTA Quincy Adams Station, Subway Countdown, January 21, 2013MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott says the modest fare increase that took effect July 1st has done nothing to interrupt the streak of consecutive months in which MBTA ridership has increased.

“August marked the seventh straight month of growth in ridership,” said GM Scott.

Weekday ridership increased by 1.3% over August 2013, averaging 1.252 million passenger trips per weekday.

GM Scott said there were ridership increases on most modes, including Commuter Rail, bus, subway, and boats. Ridership on weekends was also higher than last summer’s levels. Average Saturday ridership increased by 1.4% in August 2014 over August 2013. Average Sunday ridership increased by 2.0% in August 2014 over August 2013.

“It’s great to see so many people taking advantage of the services we deliver with pride,” said General Manager Scott. “We’ll continue to work hard as we strive to keep the ridership trend moving in the right direction.”
