Southie Surge

Silver Line ridership in South Boston has surged, according to the latest stats from the MBTA: "Total annual year-to-date ridership up 7.0% from 3,148,612 in 2010 to 3,368,580 in 2011. Average weekday ridership up 5.7% from 15,015 in 2010 to 15,877 in 2011. Average Saturday ridership up 67.3% from 5,550 in 2010 to 9,285 in 2011. Average Sunday ridership up 8.0% from 8,422 in 2010 to 9,098 in 2011." Either there are a lot more people or a lot more people forsaking their cars (probably not these folks, though—we never see them on the Silver). [Universal Hub]
