Houston Metro ridership up

Posted on February 29, 2012

For the sixth consecutive month, Houston Metro ridership is up, recording a 5.2% increase to 6,357,131 boardings in January 2012 compared to 6,043,280 in January 2011.

Metro Rail ridership posted a 17.7% increase to 902,025 boardings compared to the 766,051 recorded in the same month last year. Park & Ride and local bus service jumped to 5,455,106 boardings versus 5,277,229 in January 2011.

The continued growth is due in large part to increased employment in the area and Metro's ongoing system adjustments to improve efficiency, according to the agency.
