Metro and the Festival of Books

The first day of the L.A. Times Festival of Books was fairly quiet for Metro considering the size of the event. Only Jefferson/USC Station and 7th/Metro Station experienced higher than average crowds, and part of the crowds at 7th/Metro were heading toward Long Beach for the Grand Prix. For the rest of the system, it was just a normal weekend.

CicLAvia gets thrown into the mix tomorrow, and hopefully things run just as smoothly. We’ll have ridership numbers for the weekend on Monday.
