Authority bus ridership levels have been drastically reduced since
2008. Although fiscal year 2011-2012 showed some slight growth,
2012-2013 showed a slight decline. Bus ridership has continued
to grow month-over-month in October 2013, though it is still beneath
2012’s ridership totals by about 300,000 monthly passengers.
- Metrolink ridership rates have widely fluctuated since July 2008, but have reached
four-year highs in 2012 overall. Metrolink ridership growth has
shown great performance in 2013, peaking in September 2013 with
an estimated 352,654 rides combined across the three major Metrolink
routes: Orange County Line, Inland Empire – Orange County, and
the 91 Line.
- Both Foothill and San Joaquin toll roads hit significant lows in January 2013,
though both are beginning to trend upward, with sustained growth
throughout the majority of 2013. September saw a drastic drop
in toll road usage, but October 213 has been a slight improvement
for both routes.
