Performance (October 2016):
The Cost per MARTA Mobility Passenger Trip
of $44.45 in October exceeded the forecast by $4.23, or 10.5%. This unfavorable
variance was due to Mobility ridership falling short of the forecast by 1.5
thousand unlinked passenger trips and net over-runs in budgeted expenses. The
2017 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through October) Cost per Mobility
Passenger Trip of $40.09 is lower than the forecast by $0.54, or 1.3%.
This favorable variance is due to net under-runs in budgeted expenses.
