List of North American rapid transit systems by ridership


This is a list of North American rapid transit systems by ridership These heavy rail or rapid transit systems are also known as metro or subway systems This list of systems in North America does not include light rail, even when they are integrated with heavy rail Daily and annual ridership figures are based on "average weekday unlinked passenger trips" where transfers between lines are counted as two separate passenger "boardings" or "trips", unless otherwise indicated eg, Mexico City and Monterrey, whose figures are the average for all days, not just weekdays For metro systems in the United States including Puerto Rico and Canada, the annual ridership figures for 2014 and average weekday ridership figures for the Fourth Quarter Q4 of 2014 come from the American Public Transportation Association's APTA ridership reports statistics,1 unless otherwise noted Ridership figures for Mexico come from Banco de Información Económica's INEGI reports2

Notesedit

  1. ^ The current system incorporates elevated sections built in 1870
  2. ^ a b This Annual Ridership figure for 2014 is obtained by averaging the Average Daily Ridership for the twelve months in 2014, and then multiplying that figure by the number of days in a year
  3. ^ a b c d This is the Average Daily Ridership figure, not an Average Weekday Ridership figure - it is averaged from the Q4 2014 Total Ridership figure for this system
  4. ^ Totals represent the sum of the "Heavy Rail HR" and "Intermediate Rail IR" figures for Toronto from the APTA ridership report – in other words, figures include stations and ridership on Line 3 Scarborough RT, which APTA considers to be an IR line and which the local transit authority includes in the rapid transit system for mapping and administrative purposes
  5. ^ a b c d e This rapid transit system is integrated with a light rail system; only the parts of the system that are rapid transit/metro, and that are not light rail, are counted in the statistics presented here
  6. ^ Counting two transfer stations Commercial–Broadway Station and Waterfront Station only once; counting them twice there are 49 stations
