Wow, I love this piece:Estimates predict the MAX line constructed by the project will carry 17,000 riders at the end of its first year of service. That's $175.4 million in rider savings for that year. And at the end of 30 years of service, the MAX line is expected to carry 22,765 riders annually, which equals $234.8 million in annual rider savingsSo...22,765 "annually" divided up by 365 days...that's 62 riders a day? My single 94 bus has had 40 riders on each bus to and from downtown Portland - so the 94 bus today has 18 more riders than the Milwaukie MAX line will carry in an entire day in 30 years?
