Light Rail Passengers
The number of passenger boardings is proportional to the miles of track and number of stops found in each city. Weekday ridership is generally higher than weekend ridership due to the number of commuters using the light rail. However, weekend ridership has remained strong as the community has familiarized themselves with the system and used it for their weekend leisure activities. A summer decrease in ridership is evident, especially in Tempe and Phoenix where a large number of the ASU community use the light rail during the school year.
