Key Performance Indicators

Rail Cost per Passenger Trip

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

 

Performance (December 2019):

The Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $3.70 in December was lower than the forecast by $0.32, or 8%. This favorable variance was due to rail ridership exceeding the forecast by 0.1 million unlinked trips and operating cost coming under budget (predominantly driven by lower than forecasted labor cost). The 2020 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through December) Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $3.26 is matching the forecast.
