There are reports of sinking ridership on the Long Island Rail Road.

According to Newsday, customer use was down 1.4 percent in September compared to last year.

That adds to a total 1.7 percent drop so far this year.

The economy may be partly to blame. Also, the LIRR has had several major service disruptions this year.
