BART reported moving 568,061 people back and forth across the Bay Area and that is 45,863 more riders than its previous record. The previous high was on November 3, 2010, which just happened to be the last time the City hosted a World Series ticker tape parade down Market Street.RELATED: SF goes Orange and Black
