Columbia Heights Metro ridership way up

Ward One councilman Jim Graham posted an interesting thing on the Third District Substation listserve today, saying that ridership at the Columbia Heights was up 24% on weekdays and 39% on weekends - something that anybody who's been in the neighborhood for awhile has probably noticed. He notes that the parking garage at DCUSA is usually only about 25% full, meaning not many folks are driving to the store - good news for those people worried about traffic.

Graham also said that the Target had the second largest opening day of all stores in the country, and that 80% of Target employees live in DC, with 25% in Ward 1. Good to hear for Metro and for the neighborhood.
