New Haven Line sets record for high ridership


Despite the effects of Superstorm Sandy, Metro-North Railroad's New Haven Line provided a record 38.8 million customer trips in 2012, driven by ridership growth in non-commuter and intermediate trips and those to and from stations from Stamford to New Haven.
Ridership on the line grew about 1.5 percent from last year's record-breaking 38.2 million rides in 2011, according to Metro-North.
Overall, the railroad's three lines provided 83 million rides, its second best year ever, enough to defend its claim as the nation's busiest commuter railroad against the Long Island Railroad, which provided 81.7 million rides in 2012.
Metro-North's highest ridership total was 83.6 million in 2008, and it provided 82 million rides in 2011, according to Bob MacLagger, Metro-North's vice president of planning.
