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

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.
