Bus Cost per Passenger Trip 

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

 

Performance (December 2018):

The Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $5.52 in December exceeded the forecast by $1.31, or 31%. This unfavorable variance was due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 1.0 million unlinked passenger boardings and operating expenses coming over budget. The 2019 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through December) Cost per Bus Passenger Trip of $4.88 is exceeding the forecast by $0.71, or 17%. This unfavorable variance is due to bus ridership falling short of the forecast by 4.5 million unlinked passenger boardings.
