Performance (October 2016):

The Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $3.09 in October exceeded the forecast by $0.46, or 17.5%. This unfavorable variance was due to rail ridership falling short of the forecast by 0.5 million unlinked passenger trips and net over-runs in budgeted expenses. The 2017 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through October) Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $2.82 exceeded the forecast by $0.15, or 5.6%. This unfavorable variance is due to rail ridership falling short of the forecast by 2.2 million unlinked passenger trips.
