Re: Broad Street station Ridership: Why has it declined so much?

It all can be digested down into:

- Fewer people who are served by WB subway lines work in Lower Manhattan nowadays, compared to past decades. This is a 50+ year trend.

- People who are served by Montague Tunnel subway lines are (a) less likely to work in Lower Manhattan than they used to be and (b) since 2011 can no longer get to the Broad Street stop anyway.

- The added people who now live near Broad Street are very unlikely to take the subway over the WB.

- None of these demographic and service changes apply, or apply as strongly, to the 2/3/4/5.
