"It depends on how you look at it," Steve Hymon at the Bottleneck Blog said. In October, Metro's ridership increased when you compare it to October's 2007 ridership. However, on a month-to-month basis, ridership in general--except for the subway--is dipping as gas prices continue to fall.

But the real question for many is if the late-night subway service beginning this Friday will have enough ridership to sustain the service beyond its holiday pilot project life.
