Key Performance Indicators

Bus Cost per Passenger Trip 

Definition: Bus Cost per Passenger Trip measures the total cost of providing bus service per unlinked passenger boarding.

 

Performance (April 2018):

The Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $4.60 in April exceeded the forecast by $0.57, or 14%. This unfavorable variance is due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 0.5 million unlinked passenger boardings and expenses coming over budget. The 2018 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through April) Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $4.31 exceeded the forecast by $0.25, or 6%. This unfavorable variance is due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 4.3 million unlinked passenger boardings.
