Top 10 regional bus agencies

Here are the 10 most heavily ridden bus agencies in the region, ranked by ridership according to APTA’s latest report:

  1. WMATA – 442,900 daily unlinked passenger trips
  2. Ride-On – 93,700
  3. Fairfax Connector – 32,000
  4. Dash – 13,800
  5. The Bus – 13,300
  6. Omni-Ride – 12,400
  7. DC Circulator – 9,000* (estimated; see note below)
  8. ART – 5,100
  9. CUE – 3,800
  10. Loudoun Transit – 3,600

* APTA’s report doesn’t include information for the DC Circulator. The 9,000 daily number is estimated from DDOT’s monthly report.

Bonus:

Ridership for the other large cities in Maryland and Virginia:

  1. Baltimore MTA – 279,200
  2. Hampton Roads Transit – 49,500
  3. Greater Richmond Transit – 33,500

It’s quite shocking how much lower the Virginia cities are. Even though they’re smaller metro areas, I’d at least expect the regional transit agencies of Hampton Roads and Richmond to carry as many people as Montgomery County’s bus system. Actually, Ride-On is very impressive. If you browse through the APTA document above you can see that it carries more people than the regional bus agencies in several large cities.
