More people are taking the train on Long Island.

The LIRR says ridership in February hit 6.4 million customers.

That's up 6 percent from the same time last year.

And it was the sixth straight month that the railroad reported an increase in ridership.

The railroad also reported record figures for on-time performance.

That, however, could have something to do with the lack of snow during the winter.
