RIDERSHIP ON NORTHWEST LINES OF THE C&NW AND THE CTA

The ridership at selected stations on the northwest lines of the CTNW and CTA were analyzed to determine the change in ridership on the CTNW since the opening of the Northwest line of the CTA in Feburary 1970. Based on ridership figures, a chart was prepared showing the total annual ridership from 1964 to 1972 for CTA and CNW stations that interacted to affect ridership. A similar chart was prepared using figures from 1970 to 1972. The tables and the graph show that since the opening of the CTA, the CTNW's total annual ridership showed a ridership decrease of 34 percent in 1972 compared to 1968. The trips used here include total one-way rides to and from the stations on both week days and weekends. Fare increases on the CTA the ridership on the Northwest Line of the CTNW.
