I don't see any real surprises in these rankings. The weekday peak AM rankings for the end stations on the Virginia lines highlight that one partial solution to AM/PM peak capacity overload for the Virginia lines is to expand and improve VRE for the commuters.

@Transport, to see if BRAC has had a measurable impact on Crystal City numbers, it would be useful to compare May 2012 versus 2-3 years ago. The WMATA annual station average weekday numbers sheet does not show a drop for Crystal City through 2011.

What effect will Phase 1 of the Silver Line have on the AM entry/PM exit numbers for Vienna & WFC? I expect Wiehle Ave-Reston will draw some traffic away from Vienna and WFC, but given the drive to those stations from Reston, Sterling, north Herndon, Ashburn, probably not that much. Wiehle Ave-Reston is going to add a number of commuters who currently drive to Rosslyn and DC from the Reston-Sterling-Herndon region. Hopefully WMATA will post the May numbers every year so changes in the rankings and traffic patterns can be summarized as the Silver Line and major TOD projects open.

@Matt Johnson, any plans to post a similar summary of the peak stations for Saturdays & Sundays or combined as weekends?
