Performance (May 2019):

The Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $3.99 in May was lower than the forecast by $0.17, or 4%. This favorable variance was mostly due to operating expenses coming under budget. The 2019 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through May) Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $4.82 is exceeding the forecast by $0.67, or 16%. This unfavorable variance is due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 6.9 million unlinked passenger boardings.
