In theory if they build up the areas around the stations with TODs the ridership should continue to grow. Where it will stall is when there isn't any more people living along the line or in close proximity to the line.

The biggest success to any lrt or hrt system. Is how you redevelop the area around the stations after the fact. If a city just sits there and does nothing the line will be a waste.
