Performance (October 2019):
Cost per Rail Passenger Trip of $2.84 in October was lower than the forecast
by $0.08, or 3%. This favorable variance was due to operating cost coming under
budget. The 2020 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through October) Cost per
Rail Passenger Trip of $3.18 is exceeding the forecast by $0.12, or 4%.
This unfavorable variance is due to rail ridership falling short of the forecast by 1.1 million unlinked passenger trips.
