I bring your attention back to this chart from this post the other day about light rail killing transit growth.
I have no evidence that this chart was deliberately manipulated, but somehow the light rail ridership bar for 2014 got exaggerated. It certainly seems suspicious. Light rail ridership went up from 2013 to 2014 by only about 45,000, or 0.3%. This is negligible We should not even see the bar move. Note the total ridership in 2011 and 2010 when ridership fell by 86,000 but the bar lengths are almost indistinguishable. The rail ridership looks to my eye like the bar is 7-9% longer, not 0.3% longer. In fact, the bar for 2014 clearly goes past the halfway point between 10 and 20, despite the fact that 14.3 should be less than halfway. In fact, the 2014 rail increase of 45,000 is graphed as visually larger than the 1.3 million decrease in busses.
