Two months of A Line ridership declines — must be the winter doldrums. 

In November, RTD’s train to the plane had roughly 36,000 fewer boardings than October. That’s puts the monthly numbers just above the train’s worst-ever full month of ridership back in August. 

In the grand scheme of things, the A line is still less than a year old and monthly shifts are to be expected. And as a matter of fact, the dip in November ridership is only 4.29 percent below the A Line’s six month average.

Here’s what it all looks like:

Saturday A Line boardings were down the most in November.
