October 2014 Metrics

Overview:
  • Orange County Transportation Authority bus ridership levels have been drastically reduced since 2008. Although fiscal year 2011-2012 showed some slight growth, the following two years have shown slight declines. Ridership has historically spiked moving from July to August, but this trend is absent in 2014, with ridership falling by 99,896.
  • 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 weekday rides combined across the three major Metrolink routes: Orange County Line, Inland Empire – Orange County, and the 91 Line. The past nine months have seen declining ridership rates, ending June 2014 with 298,282 combined riders – a decline of nearly 25,000 since the previous June.
  • Both Foothill and San Joaquin toll roads have trended upward through 2013, and combined the roads have seen roughly 2.1 percent increases in usage from 2013 to 2014 thus far. August 2014 transactions on both Foothill and San Joaquin are both significantly higher than at the beginning of 2014 but both toll roads have seen slight usage declines since July 2014.
