The tumultuous journey of the A Line continues. After rising to its highest ever ridership in September, the new train to the plane had roughly 12,000 fewer boardings this October.

But even though there were fewer A Line boardings in October, it’s still higher than the average 504,652 boardings for the past six full months of operation.

Here’s what it all looks like:

Weekday boarding fell in October.

So far, the A Line has proven unable to crack the threshold of 550,000 boarding in a month. Taken a different way, the train hasn’t had fewer than 460,000 boarding during a full month so far.

In that sense, October A Line ridership numbers aren’t a drastic departure from any month so far. Weekday boardings fell by roughly 14,000, which isn’t great news, but in the broader scheme of things, it’s not so dramatic.

Of course, you can also see that in the graph above too.
