Metro broke a one-day ridership record, with 55,828 passengers using the light-rail system Friday. Passengers boarded Metro to reach the Arizona Diamondbacks home opener, Disney on Ice and the Janet Jackson concert.

The record was more than 3,000 additional passengers than the old high point, when a Feb. 4, 2010, Get Motivated seminar brought heavy use.

Metro also set a monthly ridership record in March, with more than 1.2 million passengers.
