    any idea when metro will release the ridership statistics for dec, jan, and feb?
    i'm curious to see how the new red line rail segment has fared, and if it's had an impact on the overall numbers.

    previous reports can be found here - http://www.ridemetro.org/News/Documents/RidershipReport.aspx

    this means less cars on the road. also, the red line expansion success, it's a good sign that the two lines currently under construction will also be successful.

    longer term, if these numbers remain strong, it could further mean expansion to bigtexx's dismay :eek:
