The Cost per MARTA Mobility Passenger Trip
of $44.81 in October was lower than the forecast by $4.75, or 10%. This favorable
variance was due to Mobility ridership exceeding the forecast by 4.3 thousand
unlinked passenger boardings and operating expenses coming under budget. The
2018 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through October) Cost per Mobility
Passenger Trip of $51.07 exceeded the forecast by $0.10, or 0.2%. This unfavorable
