@Alex et al.:

The intent of my earlier post was to point out that the car-centric, commuter stations (Shady Grove, Vienna, etc.) have higher peak ridership numbers than close-in, TOD stations, with the exception of Union Station. I found this, well, surprising.

To be sure, TOD-oriented stations offer more balanced transportation alternatives—bicycling, walking, bus—nevertheless, the car-centric ones farthest out had higher riderships numbers. This applies to even overall DAILY usage.

From the linked list for daily Metrorail usage in Alex B's post:

2012

Bethesda 10,888
Shady Grove 13,870

Ballston 12,042
Vienna 13,773
