Phoenix's Valley Metro sets ridership records in April


Last month, Phoenix’s Valley Metro set records for the most riders in one month and one day, and the highest average weekday ridership since the light-rail system opened in December 2008.

April ridership totaled 1.2 million, with an average weekday ridership of 44,932, average Saturday ridership of 34,533, and average Sunday and holiday ridership of 20,573. The previous records set in March were 1.16 million total monthly riders and an average weekday ridership of 41,413.

Valley Metro also marked its highest-ever daily ridership of 55,679 on April 5, when the Arizona Diamondbacks held their season home opener.
