Performance (April 2019):

The Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $3.68 in April exceeded the forecast by $0.63, or 21%. This unfavorable variance was due to rail ridership falling short of the forecast by 0.4 million unlinked passenger boardings and operating expenses coming over budget. The 2019 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through April) Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $3.17 is exceeding the forecast by $0.02, or 1%. This unfavorable variance is due to rail ridership falling short of the forecast by 1.0 million unlinked passenger boardings.
