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 (May 2019):

The Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $2.97 in May was lower than the forecast by $0.19, or 6%. 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 Rail Passenger Trip of $3.15 matched the forecast, with rail ridership shortage of 0.9 million unlinked passenger boardings offsetting operating expenses coming under budget.
