Key Performance Indicators

Bus Cost per Passenger Trip 

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

 

Performance (April 2019):

The Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $5.40 in April exceeded the forecast by $1.39, or 35%. This unfavorable variance was due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 0.7 million unlinked passenger boardings and operating expenses coming over budget. The 2019 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through April) Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $4.92 is exceeding the forecast by $0.78, or 19%. This unfavorable variance is due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 7.0 million unlinked passenger boardings.
