Taylor Swift fans break VTA ridership record at Santa Clara show


(KRON) — Public transportation ridership records were smashed by Taylor Swift fans last night, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority announced.

Swifties are no strangers to breaking records, and they did it again last night at the pop star’s first Bay Area tour stop. An estimated 23,400 people boarded VTA trains before and after the show, the travel agency said.

The previous record for highest ridership was the 2015 NHL Winter Classic, when around 15,000 people used VTA to get to and from Levi’s. The number of riders was more than double what VTA saw for Super Bowl 50 back in 2016, when 10,000 passengers used VTA as their transport to and from the game.

That number is no surprise. Levi’s Stadium can seat upwards of 65,000 people, and tickets for Swift’s shows have been sold out for months.

A photo shared by VTA shows Swifties pouring out of the concert in droves. We’ll have to wait and see if concertgoers on night two of the tour stop manage to break the record once again.
