Last month’s weekday ridership (pdf) on Central Link was 21,774, up 8% over April and a new record. The figures were 18,710 on Saturdays and 13,641 on Sundays, both records if you discount the large crowds on opening weekend.
Thanks to seasonal variations and other factors, it will be difficult to discern any trends until we have year-to-year comparisons for the entire Seatac-Westlake line, which should happen early in 2011. I’m not sure what else is to be said about these numbers that hasn’t been said in the monthly threads on the same subject.
Update by John Jensen: I thought I’d share a graph of the average weekday ridership thus far. Since the late December opening of the airport stop, we’ve seen a nice upward slope in ridership.
