Number of Metro Riders in Washington D.C. at Selected Big Events


How can you measure the number of people attending selected public events in a big city like Washington? One possible way is to count the number of passengers that use public transportation.

This of course is just an indicator, as some attendees will have use alternative means of transport, such as pick-ups, horses or bikes.
