A 200% increase in ferry traffic means it was three times normal. Was that true, or was it a double?
Hi there: Just checked, and it looks like ridership did triple here at least. From one of our stories during the strike:
Ferry spokesman Ernest Sanchez said the Alameda and Oakland ferries carried three times the passengers this morning that they normally do. The Alameda and Oakland lines took 4,656 passengers - more than three times the 1,400 they normally carry during a morning commute - and the Harbor Bay ferry carried 1,046 passengers, up from 750 on an average morning, Sanchez said.
