Performance (December 2019):
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.
