Average Weekday Boardings


Ridership is a key measure to monitor the attractiveness of transit services. Increasing ridership results in congestion relief and is an important metric in measuring San Francisco's progress toward becoming a healthier, more sustainable and livable city.


Ridership is measured by automated passenger counters on buses and by traffic checkers on rail vehicles and reported system-wide monthly as average weekday boardings.
