NJ Transit posts record ridership numbers

Posted on March 9, 2005

New Jersey Transit announced that ridership on the system’s trains, buses and light rail lines increased to more than 225 million in 2004, up 4.4% from 2003.

NJ Transit Executive Director George Warrington cited an improving regional economy, job growth and service expansions as reasons for the gains.

“With ridership at record highs, it is critically important that we effectively match capacity with demand,” said Warrington.

Meanwhile, the Central Florida Transportation Authority (LYNX) in Orlando enjoyed a record-setting month in January with more than 2 million trips, a 7.5% increase over January 2004.

Over the past four months, LYNX has seen an 8% overall ridership increase without adding any routes or services.
