Record number of riders on NYC subway system

If it feels like there are more people riding the subways in New York City than ever before, it's because that's true.

The MTA says a record of more than 6.2 million people rode the subway on Oct. 29.

They say about 50,000 less people rode the subways on the same date the year before.

October 2015's average weekday subway ridership of 5.974 million was the highest of any month in over 45 years, and 1.4 percent higher than October 2014.

The MTA said last April that the subway system was seeing the highest number of riders in the last 65 years and that much of the increase was due to population increases in rapidly developing neighborhoods, like Bushwick in Brooklyn and Long Island City in Queens.

Lower Manhattan south of Chambers Street has also seen substantial subway growth, with more than 12,357 new daily customers added in the last year, as new commercial and offices open in the area.
