As we have reported before, ridership on the SLU Streetcar has continued to grow since opening in December 2007 as new housing and employment continues to grow in the area. The average weekday ridership figure for July 2011 is based on 1 week of data, so the June data is better to focus on. Average weekday ridership for June 2011 grew by over 900 additional boardings over 2010, with a year over year increase of 200 weekday boardings the year before. From June 2009 to June 2011 average daily ridership grew by 64%. Average weekday ridership and year-over-year growth data below the jump.
I find the year over year data the most interesting. The January 2009-2010 through September 2009-2010 data shows a year over year growth rate in the mid teens. After the October 2009-2010 data point the growth rate jumps into the mid 20s for a few months, finally increasing to the high 20s and low 30s after the March 2010-2011 data point.
