The Metropolitan Transportation Authority set a ridership record of more than 1.7 billion people who rode the subway last year. That’s a 2.6 percent increase from 2013.

The data released shows that 5.6 million people rode the system on weekdays and 6 million took it on an average weekend.

The MTA says at its busiest, it carried more than 6 million customers on 29 weekdays in the last four months of 2014. That’s a level it hasn’t seen since the post-World War II era.

Booming Brooklyn led the four subway boroughs with a 2.7% increase. It was followed by Manhattan (2.5%), the Bronx (2.1%) and Queens (1.9%).
The Marcy Avenue station in Williamsburg, used by J, M and Z train riders, saw the biggest jump.
