The MBTA reports total T ridership passed 400 million in the 12 months ending June 30, the first time its ridership numbers have ever been that high.
The ridership increase was experienced across all MBTA modes, including buses (5.9% growth), the subway (5.2%), and trolleys (8.0%)
T officials credited several factors, including the improving local economy, the availability of real-time transit info for bus and train riders (except on the Green Line) and "an overall improvement in MBTA service reliability."
