Caltrain ridership up this year from 2017

 

Caltrain ridership has jumped slightly this year compared to 2017, when ridership decreased, Caltrain officials said.

Ridership is up 1.5 percent this year, according to the annual onboard ridership count, which showed that average mid-weekday ridership for 2018 is currently at 65,095 passengers.

Caltrain officials said the weekday count methodology has been changed this year. Whereas the 2017 count came from trains on all five weekdays, this year's count came from counting weekday trains on Tuesday, Thursday or Wednesday.

The annual ridership count is used to identify trends, allocate resources to deal with capacity issues and validate ridership-based revenue.
