BART Absorbs Riders

Because of the freeway connector that was destroyed by a tanker truck explosion, commuters have been flocking to BART. Monday was the highest ridership ever on BART. Imagine what would have happened if there were no transit. A similar situation in Chicago occurred when freeway repairs were being made parallel to the brown line.

Trains carried an estimated 375,200 riders on Tuesday, eclipsing the previous record of 374, 900 passengers set in 2000, according to a BART news release.
