Seven-Eleven Tops Reagan Funeral

Metro is reporting that Friday, July 11 was the highest ridership day ever in the system's 32 year history. With 854,638 riders, Metro moved 4,000 more passengers than they did on the date of President Ronald Reagan's state funeral.

This year alone, Metro has set 20 of their top 25 highest ridership days.

And Washington isn't alone. The Overhead Wire is reporting that other American systems are seeing numbers not expected for years. The new kid on the block, Charlotte, is showing quite a bit of promise.
