The NYC Subway Is Very Popular Right Now

Subway riding in New York City reached its highest number since the 1940s last year. MTA reports over 1.65 billion passengers in 2012, the most since there were over 2 billion in 1946. These recent statistics also show a 1 percent increase over 2011, despite being shut down for five days last fall because of Hurricane Sandy

The G train boasted the most passengers, averaging over 2,000 on weekdays due to the continuing development of Brooklyn. MTA officials also noted frequent travel from Queens to Brooklyn as a result of the Barclays Center opening.
