MESA, Ariz. -- September was the busiest month for ridership on metro Phoenix's light rail system since it was opened nearly three years ago.

The East Valley Tribune reports that (http://bit.ly/nUUwYp) there were 1.2 million boardings last month.

Ridership has grown so quickly that it's approaching levels projected for 2020.

The system carried 47,818 riders on average during weekdays last month.

That's compared with a projected 48,004 in 2020 that was estimated when the system was in the planning stages.
