It’s 2015 this year, and the Green Line feels like the future to me. Lot’s of people are riding it.
How many? Take a look:
According to the Metro Transit blog, “September’s strong light-rail ridership can partly be attributed to special events. More than 193,000 light-rail rides were taken to home sporting events last month.”
If you ask me, University of Minnesota students being back on campus might also make a big difference.
How do these numbers compare to 2014? They’re up. September and October 2014 had 1.13 million rides on the Green Line.
This year, it’s 1.24 million, which is more.
