Caltrain Ridership Record

And the hits keep coming. Caltrain, with the introduction of the Baby Bullet in 2004, has been rocking up ever since. The press release says ridership is up 8.2% from the previous year. The average weekday has been around 35,000. Now they just need to electrify it and get EMUs. Then the service would be faster and more energy efficient.

Update: Sounder is getting some good ridership as well. Check out Seattle Transit Blog.

Seattle is experiencing similar results as I noted on Seattle Transit Blog on the recent post with the Sounder. This is great for rail fans. Sure makes transit easy. Perhaps these stories are big for commuter rail?
