Valley Metro sets record for ridership in one month
Over seven million riders boarded the Valley Metro system in October, setting a new record.
In total, 7,080,564 boardings were recorded in October, up 10 percent than the same month in 2011. Valley Metro said the increase was aided by the Oregon-Arizona State University football game, when 65,000 boarding were recorded.
The old record was set in April 2009, when 6,649,206 boardings were recorded.
