The uptown tube is probably in poor condition, necessitating the need for slower moving trains.

The speed limit of the Christopher Street tubes in the video is 20 mph.

Total ridership so far this year is 12,264,054, an increase of 4.33% from the same period last year. Not bad.
March is 266,745

It looks like 266k is it for now. It's probably not getting much higher unless the Port Authority starts running more trains. It will be interesting to see what ridership does now with the hundreds of new units coming online every month in the immediate vicinity of the stations.

April 289,351 (+7.12%) (+12.00% from 2015)

Total Ridership YTD: 26,005,863

BOOM! April 2017 is busiest month on record. If my theory is correct, each successive month should be recordbreaking as thousands of units from the Waterfront to Newark come online and the New York City job market continues to grow. I would love for Journal Square and Newark to see widescale office development to encourage a reverse flow from Manhattan.

For the first six months of the year, PATH carried an average 277,000 weekday riders. From July 10 through Wednesday, the rail system carried an average 309,000 riders, with about 24,000 using their NJ Transit tickets to transfer at Hoboken Terminal.

Currently, PATH ridership is outpacing that of the Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North and NJ Transit's commuter rail operations, the region's largest.

"And those are big railroads," said Mike Marino, PATH's director and general manager.

Marino added that the railroad had maintained a 98 percent on-time record in spite of 7 percent to 8 percent more riders. It was 100 percent on time on Thursday, he said.

Another interesting fact is average daily ridership growth has been occurring in all the PATH stations over the last 5 years except for Journal Square. It's been flat having the nearly identical average weekday ridership numbers from 2012 to 2017. What would cause this? And with Journal Squared leasing up, I wonder if we'll finally see a slight bump?

Would be nice if they have more cars in service on both WTC and 33rd street lines from midnight to 6am on the weekends!

Unrealistic but one can dream!

One more train to each line would reduce the headways from 35 min overnight to 18-20 min. It's documented that ridership is greatly influenced by headways, so there should be a decent ridership boost too.
