Warriors parade makes BART’s top 5 busiest days in ridership history

OAKLAND (KRON) — The Warriors parade Thursday wasn’t just a historical day for the city of Oakland.

BART officials are reporting ridership numbers of historical measures:

BART carried more than half a million trips on Thursday — 518,744 to be exact — making the Golden State Warriors’ 2017 NBA Championship victory parade the fifth-highest ridership day in our history.”

Still, the Warriors 2015 victory parade drew a crowd about 5% larger than this year’s.

A cool takeaway from this data – This means that 2/5 of BART’s busiest days were because of our Golden State Warriors.

Now, that’s proof – Dubs have “Strength in Numbers!”
