A visual history of Metrorail ridership, station by station
Michael Theis/Personal archives
let's put Metorail's woes into context. Below, we've used an official average daily ridership dataset from Metrorail, passed on by Hyattsville Economic Development Corporation, to chart the system's changing ridership fortunes. Broken down station-by-station, the data allows you to see how each expansion of Metrorail has impacted ridership on other parts of the system.
