Sometimes, the A Line seems to share more in common with a roller coaster than a train. At least when it comes to ridership numbers.

After the first dip in A Line ridership ever last month, new data shows that in September, more people rode the train than ever before.

More precisely, there were 17,563 more boarding in September than in July, when there were 513,983 boardings.

Here’s what it all looks like:

The September total reflects a 3.4 percent growth from the previous high.

Another thing to note here is that weekday boardings are also at their highest level, which is a good thing. Weekday boardings are more important to the overall health of the line because they show how many people are using it most regularly.
