This isn’t that great a chart, but does show the growing ridership of the Metro Transit systemwide, via Citypages:

(Note: 2004 was the bus strike year.)

Increases in ridership due to the Green Line alone account for (rough napkin calculation: 10K/week X 25 weeks =) 250,000 new rides on the system.  That’s why transit planners like light rail!
