72% of people who use the Orange Line in the R-B corridor walk to the stations.

That's an impressive, although not all that surprising, statistic. Thanks for sharing.

I thought the more impressive statistic was the even amount of entries and exits at the stations all day long. We've got people coming and going, and thus activity, all the time. It's a wonderful thing.

Good report, great blog.

I hate to use the comment feature in this way, but I am not sure how else to contact you. Anyway, I noticed that you've commented on my website, and featured one of my articles. THANKS! I really appreciate that, especially linking to the BART article. However, I was wondering if you might be willing to link to my website, SwitchingModes.com? I already have a link to your website. Thanks and keep up the good work! I really enjoy reading your blog. - Brian

72% are walking, and most of the rest are getting there on buses of bikes. Nobody drives to those stations.

... And this is a SUBURB that was populated primarily by strip malls right up until the arrival of Metrorail. The R-B corridor is the product of late 20th and early 21st century development. Your city CAN recreate it.

Buses OR bikes. Sorry.
