Data Download: October 2012 Rail Ridership

downloadOptionA_256PlanItMetro saw great interest in our last full data download of O/D data last year. We thought we’d provide an update with data from October of 2012. This enhanced data download contains the following files:

  • Full O/D trip data MS Access, including service type (weekday, Saturday, Sunday Special), travel period (AM Peak, mid-day, etc.), entry hour, Origin Station, Destination Station, rider class (full fare or discounted), media type (SmarTrip vs paper farecard), fare instrument type (stored value vs benefits vs pass), average travel time and average number of trips.
  • Subset of O/D trip data “No Details” CSV, includes all trips like the first file above but doesn’t include details on rider class, media type or fare instrument

Download either of these data files and let us know what you find!

    Thanks for continuing these data releases.

    Would there ever be any way of getting historical data on schedules or service levels (that is, how many trains ran in a given day)?

    It would be interesting to chart ridership vs service.

    Is there a location where you list all your data available for download? I’d love to start doing some visualizations of the data (like what you did on June 4- https://planitmetro.com/2013/06/04/visualization-of-9-years-of-metrorail-ridership/#more-4254).

    Thanks Michael for your quick response! Were you able to release the data from your ridership calendar? I didn’t see a link to the raw data anywhere in that post or on the tags page.

    Thanks!
