Subway Ridership Down: First Time Since 2009

Amazingly, subway ridership has dropped for the first time since 2009.  Weekend ridership has declined, while weekday ridership has steadily increased since 1948.  Two of the culprits for the decline in ridership are Uber and the constant maintenance of the subways. Critics point to Governor Cuomo who cut  $65 million worth of state funding from the M.T.A. budget. Officials say the funding changes would not lead to fare and toll increases or service changes.
