Just out of curiousity. Let's see how Metro ridership is amongst the forumers lol...

I live near FIU, so it doesn't play into my daily routine, but I'm a transit rider at heart, so I usually find myself riding it every so often when I can make it work. Whenever I'm attending events downtown, I usually try to park at a metro stop and ride it downtown.

I won't be living in this area when the East-West line is completed, but if I were, it would likely become my primary mode of transportation.

I only ride it couple times a year. When some friends and I decide we don't want to drive to downtown and deal with parking there. It's also because we plan on drinking like animals and can't drive after also.

I'm sure the number is low because the metrorail isn't close to most of us. However if you were to take a poll of only the very few Miamians who either live or work (or both) close to the metrorail, you would find the averages for that question far different.

Most people I know who take the metro live far, but work close to it. Their commuting habits are to drive to a station and park (Dadeland North, Dadeland South or South Miami if they live in Kendall or Palmetto or Tri-rail if they live in Broward) and take it to Either Government or Civic Center where they work. I'm blessed to both live and work close to a metrorail so commuting that way is a no brainer for me, high gas prices or not.

I normally carpool but end up taking it home 4 or 5 times month when I'm working late. I transfer to bus at Dadeland North.

I ride it only if my destination is Dwtn or Brickell on weekends or on special events such as concerts, ULTRA, and stuff...

I normally take the Metro a couple times a week when I'm going to Downtown or Brickell to visit friends.

Riding the metro is a cool experience, especially that we have a mono air metro.

BTW, this easy-card thing is not helping me at all, I prefer the old bus/metro passes.

I used to take it almost every day but now I only take it two times a week. It's cool but waiting for it at night is a pain. I got back from downtown a few nights ago at 10:30pm when the metro was supposed to arrive at 8:50pm! I can't wait to get my own car...
