Phoenix METRO, March 2011 Ridership April 12th, 2011
The Phoenix trolley (“light rail”) system had a good March even as weekday ridership declined slightly. Saturdays now see as many riders as weekdays did at the system’s opening, and Sunday ridership is nearly at the originally-projected weekday levels.
Phoenicians are using the trolleys not just as “commuter trains” but as all-day-long trolleys for school, shopping, and fun.
Can there be a clearer reason not to build the second line along Highway 10, but rather west on Thomas Road from Midtown Station (Thomas and Central) to 35th Avenue and out to Downtown Glendale? See How a METRO Green Line Might Look.
