Key Performance Indicators

Bus Cost per Passenger Trip 

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

 

Performance (May 2018):

The Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $6.05 in May exceeded the forecast by $1.97, or 48%. This unfavorable variance is due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 1.0 million unlinked passenger boardings and expenses coming over budget. The 2018 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through May) Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $4.45 exceeded the forecast by $0.39, or 10%. This unfavorable variance is due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 5.2 million unlinked passenger boardings.
