Day-By-Day Ridership Numbers

We’re sharing our ridership and traffic data each day to help you understand how many people are using our services in and around New York City.

Updated July 31, 2020

As New York City starts reopening, we’re keeping this page up to date with systemwide ridership and traffic estimates for subways, buses, Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North RailroadAccess-A-Ride, and Bridges and Tunnels. You can see changes over the past seven days, as well as get a sense of how ridership and traffic differs this year versus last year. You can also download all the data for each agency that we have published on this page. We will generally update the page on weekdays, excluding holidays, with the prior day's figures. At times, data issues may delay the updates.

These figures are indicative of ridership but not a precise count. Figures from recent days may be revised as reconciliation processes are carried out.

About the Access-A-Ride data: To provide timely updates, this data presents scheduled Access-A-Ride trips as an indicator of demand, rather than completed trips. The process to reflect completed trips, including adjusting for on-demand trips, cancelations, no shows, and on-street issues, would delay release of data for several weeks.
