Ridership of Subway Lines

Does anybody have info on ridership of individual subway LINES? Not system-wide ridership.

For example, the Red Line is busiest in LA with 120,000 daily riders (less than the peak of 150,000 pre-911). Ridership is 40m a year; and at 17.1 miles, that's 7000ppm. (info from mta website)

Paris Metro: Line 1: 440,000 daily riders; 160m year; 11 miles - 41,000ppm.

Any more stats like that? Is there a website?

NYC's Lexington Line is the busiest line in America. It uses 4 tracks and the #4,5,6 trains carry a combined 1.3 million people a day.

In SF, the Daly City BART line is busiest...but I don't know the stats.

In London the Victoria line is the busiest, 161,319,000 journeys per year.
That's 7,591,482 passengers per km.

This is actually less than the Northern line (206,734,000), Central Line (183,512,000) and Piccadilly line (176,177,000), but the Victoria line only has 16 stations compared to 45+ for all those other ones.

How is 'busy-ness' measured, anyway? I could imagine that a short line with only 10 stations carrying 100.000 a day is busier than a longer line with 30 stations carrying the same amount.

It should be told though that metro lines aren't the busiest urban rail lines in Paris, as opposed to what we see in most other cities. The busiest lines are actually the RER lines. They have services which are more frequent than metro lines in their common trunk (less than 2 minutes between each trains at rush hour on line A). The line A of the RER being the busiest rail line in Europe with over 1,000,000 passengers a day !

Here are the same figures for the RER lines :
Line 272,800,000 (108.5 km 46 stations) - ridership figure only for the RATP section (75 km)
Line 165,100,000 (80.0 km 47 stations) - ridership figure only for the RATP section (40 km)
Line 140,000,000 (185.6 km 86 stations)
Line 145,000,000 (160.0 km 58 stations)
Line 60,000,000 (52.3 km 21 stations)

Busiest line in Washington DC is the Red Line: 257,800 daily; 33 miles; 7812ppm. DC isn't really a subway though...more like an RER.

I take only RATP lines

Line 165,100,000 (RATP sections 40 km) 4,130,000 passengers per km in 2004
line 272,800,000 (RATP sections 75 km ) 3,640,000 passengers per km in 2004

With this I can says that the RATP RER line and London are similar.

It will be interresent the same classement but by passenger per stations.

Only partially. Though RER does have underground stations within Paris, most of its stations and track kilometers are outside the city and above ground. As far as I'm concerned it's regional commuter rail.

Outside the city yes but a big part of Paris are outside the city should be in Paris
La Defense is not in Paris why ? (In fact this district is located at 1.5 km from the city in the dense suburbs 15,000 inh/km2)
Paris is too small and it is not this real size (Paris isn't 2 millions inh for 100 Km2 but It is more 6.5 millions and 700 km)
I have only include RATP RER because the RER lines of this compagny is a subway. (Like tube)
