Metro Sets Record

Yesterday, I reported on experiencing lots of tourist crowding on Metro. I was apparently wrong. It wasn't just visitors jamming up the system. Ridership reached an all time high yesterday.

Metrorail carried some 866,681 trips on January 19, 2009.

My projection is that we'll set another one today.

I thought yesterday was going to be noticeably busier than an average Monday (after riding last night). But Record Breaking!

1.5 million today? Looks like a possibility, damn ...
