FOREWORD Under contract with the Office of Public Transit, Department of Transportation, State of Florida, the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) has conducted a performance evaluation of Florida's flXed-route transit systems This report is based on data from federally-required Section 15 reports, which are submitted to the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) for each fiscal year by systems receiving Section 9 funding. UMTA, which bas required these data since 1979, provides extensive documentation on how the data are to be collected and reported, and requires auditor certification of the submitted data. Section 15 reports are the best single source of data for reviewing transit system performance because the data are standardized, undergo extensive review, and are the result of a substantial data collection and reporting process by the transit systems. Some Section 15 data are used by UMT A and by states and localities for calculating formulae for the allocation of funding to transit systems. As a result, the data are extremely important to transit agencies. This report is one of three documents prepared as part of the performance evaluation project. In addition to this technical memorandum (Part IT, Peer Review Analysis, 1989), a second technical memorandum was prepared (Part L Trend Analysis, 1984). Finally, a summary report was produced which highlights the information and findings of both technical memoranda. This is the second statewide transit evaluation conducted by the Florida Department of Transportation (FOOT) and CUTR. CUTR would like to thank FOOT, the Florida Transit Association, and each of the individual transit systems for their cooperation and assistance in the preparation of the memoranda and summary report.

1.989 PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF FWRIDA TRANSIT SYSTEMS PART II Peer Review Allalysls, 1989 I. INTRODUcnON Rapid growth in Florida has resulted in increased attention to public transit as a potential solution to solving ever-increasing transportation problems in the state. Along with the increased emphasis on public transit comes the necessity to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of transit systems. Florida l egislatio n requires the Florida Departme nt of Transportation and Florida's transit systems to develop and report performance measur es. The relevant Florida statutes are no te d in Figure 1.

Consistent with the legislation, this report provides an overview of the individual and collective performance of Florida's fixed-route transit systems. There are nineteen systems that provide fixed-route motorbus services. Of these nineteen systems, thirteen also offer some type of demand-response service either directly or through a contract with an outside vendor (this report does not address demand-response services). Two systems (Metro-Dade Transit Agency and Jacksonville Transponation Authority) operate automated guideway systems (peoplemover) while a single system (Metro-Dade) operates a rapid rail system. In addition, a commuter rail system is currently operating in South Florida (Tri-County Commuter Rail). A twentieth system (Space Coast Area Transit in Brevard County) is unique when compared to other systems around the state. Space Coast provides demand response and vanpool-basect tnmsft services only. The report is presented in two parts. Pan I, Trend Analysis, (separately bound) begins with a summary of statewide trends, followed by a consideration of the Florida fixed-route total trend. Pan I also presents the perfonnance trend for each of Florida's fixed-route transit systems over a six-year time period (1984-1989). A variety of tabular and graphical data are included which ponray the changes in several performance, effectiveness, and efficiency measures from the years 1984 to 1989. Appendix A provides a list of definitions of the terms used in the repon. Appendix 8 presents a review of the specific sources for data used throughout the analysis. Pan II, Peer Review Analysis, presents tabular and graphical data contrasting the performance of Florida's transit systems with each other and with similar systems from around the country for 1989 only. Appendix A provides a list of definitions for terms used in Pan II and is identical to Appendix A of Pan I. Appendix 8 presents a review of the specific sources for data used throughout the analysis and is identical to Appendix 8 of Pan I. Appendix C of Pan n provides a summary of the peer selection process for the analysis. In addition to these two parts, a separate summary report was prepared which highlights the information and findings of both technical memoranda. Unlike the 1988 Performance Evaluation, this report includes both summary comments and conclusions based on observation and analysis of the perfonnanoe trends. The summary comments for each Florida transit system are included in Pan I and appear after each system's trend graphics. No summary comments were provided in Pan n. The Florida transit systems included in this report are noted in Figure 1-2. 4

A. TilE PURPOSE OF PERFORMANCE REVIEW Since performance analysis is only one means of evaluating performance and is limited to those aspects included in the analysis, the reader should exercise considerable caution in interpreting the results. It is partirularly strong in reviewing cost effectiveness and efficiency; however, it does not report on the extent to which other objectives of the transit authority are being attained. For example, the performance evaluation will not directly measure several relevant considerations such as passenger satisfaction with regard to levels of service, taxpayer and public attitudes toward the agency, employee morale, success in attaining minority hiring or contracting goals, quality of planning, contributions to economic development, air quality improoremeDtS, onrthcr-goals that may be importam to the agency. In addition, several aspects of quality of service are not measured in performance reviews. These include vehicle cleanliness and comfort, operator courtesy, ontime performance, quality of marketing and passenger information support, and level of satisfaction with hours of operations. frequency of service, and geographic coverage of the service. In addition to understanding the limits of this analysis, the reader should use caution in interpreting the meaning of the various measures. The performance review does not necessarily provide information regarding which aspects of performance are within control of the agency and which measures are noL Figure 1 is a schematic of the factors that ultimately affect transit agency performance. The figure indicates that transit system management has varying degrees of influence over the various factors. Performance reviews are a useful and important tool in monitoring and improving transit system performance. However, it should be recognized that the results of trend and peer analyses are only a starting point for fully understanding the performance of transit systems. The issues identified as a result of the analyses provide the basis for a series of questions that can lead to an enhanced understanding of the "bows" and "whys" of system performance. 6

B. PERFORMANCE REVIEW DATA BASE The major source of data for the performance review is Section 1 5 reports. To receive federal funds, transit properties are required to report a variety of data in a standardized format, resulting in what is known as a Section 15 report. These reports provide standardized measures of reporting that enable a more accurate comparison of information between properties. Since 1979, when this reporting requirement was instituted, additional refinements in data collection and reporting have increased the accuracy and comparability of the data. The data are for the fiscal year nsed by each trans i t authority For Florida properties, the fiscal year runs from October 1 through September 30 For other properties, the fiscal year may be different. For clarification of any discrepancies, it is recommended that the appropriate transit system be contacted to verify data and identify any unique characteristics of significance. Data Reliability All Section 15 data submitted to UMTA are subject to considerable review and validation through manual and automated methods. Each report is thoroughly examined to identify errors, questions, and inconsistencies. UMTA i dentifies problems and requires each reporting agency to respond to these prob l ems before the final report is accepted. The quality of the data published in UMTA's "National Urban Mass Transportation Statistics Section 15 Annual Report" improves each year as transit systems become more familiar with collecting and reporting data and as definitions and procedures become more standardized. Despite the fact that the data are becoming more reliable over time, there still remain problems with the quality of the data for some transit systems. For this study, data were taken from published summary reports of Section 15 filings and from individual Section 15 reports provided by the transit agencies for fiscal year 1989. With the exception of data on service area population and the inflation rate, all information was provided by the transit systems. CUTR did not collect any original data or conduct any audits or on-site analyses of the data or data collection procedures. CUTR did, however, review the data in detail and correspond with the transit systems concerning or inconsistencies. This review involved identifying irregularities in trends and numbers that 8

PAGE 23

were believed to require additional review and verification, such as reviewing selected ratios and data trends to identify changes that were atypical, given the overall trends. Additionally, a completed system data file was provided to each property for review and verification. In many instances, data were changed or significant modifications were made. In several cases, data previously submitted to UMT A were changed to reflect new information or refinements in definitions and data collection. In some instances, transcription or othe r errors were discovered in the data. In other instances, erroneous data from previous years which could not be corrected were extrapolated or estimated to provide the most accurate information possible The level of attention to data review was considerably greater for Florida properties than for peer properties from outside the state The data used for peer comparison in Part ll of this report consisted of data reported for 1989. Since these data are more recent, they are expected to be of higher quality. The absence of trend data for non-Florida systems precluded applying many of the reasonableness tests to the peer data that were applied to the data of Florida's transit systems. Data Definitions To fully understand the data presented in this report, it is important to understand the definitions of the terms used in Section 15 documents. In many instances, these definitions differ from initial perceptions and may be subject to interpretation. Appendix A provides a detailed list of definitions for terms used by UMTA The data collection procedures further specify exactly what is being referred to by a given term. For example, "passenger trip" refers to an individual boarding a transit vehicle. A person riding a bus from the comer to the office takes one passenger trip to work and a second passenger trip to return home. Likewise, a person who takes a bus, transfers to Metrorail, and then transfers to Metromover would be counted as taking three passenger trips. In sp ite of these definitions and continued refinements in data collection procedures, there remain some discrepancies between systems as to bow terms are defined and bow information is collected. Accordingly, caution should be used in interpreting findings, especially for those variables that are more likely to be subject to variation in definitions. Examples include some variation in the specific definitions of "roadcalls" and "accidents" used by the various properties. Other agencies differ in bow empl oyees are categorized among administrative, transportation, and maintenance tasks. Still other discrepancies can result from differences in the structure of the agency and the allocation of responsibilities among the various 9

PAGE 24

governmental entities. For example, some transit systems establish their own transit police/security forces, while others rely on the municipal or county law enforcement agencies to provide the necessary servic:es. Differences suc:h as this can result in a significant variation in operating costs. Numerous other, more subtle cost allocation differences can impact the data For enmple, street sweeping and garbage piclcup at park and-ride and other transit facilities may be provided at no cost by a given jurisdiction or may be a contract or in-house cost of the transit system. Legal services, computer services, engineering and design support, lldministrative support, and other costs are often shared costs that may or may not be accurately allocated between the transit system and a parent governmental body. The national inflation rate, as defined by the percentage c:hange in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for all items (including commodities and services) from year to year, was used to deflate cost indicators so that they could be presented in real terms. From 1984 through 1989, service and labor costs tended to increase at a faster rate than did commodity prices Therefore, transit operating expenses, whic:h are predominantly comprised of service and labor costs, may be expected to increase somewhat faster than inflation even if the amount of service provided were not increased. Performance lndlcatoa and Measures The evaluation measures that are used throughout the performance review are divided into three major categories: performance indicators, effectiveness measures, and efficiency measures. Performance indicators report the data in the selected categories that are required by Section IS reporting. These tend to be key indicators of overall transit system performance. Effectiveness measures typically refine the data further and indicate the extent to which various service-related goals are being achieved. For eumple, passenger trips per capita is an indicator of the effectiveness of the agency in meeting transpOrtation needs. Efficiency measures involve reviewing the level of resources (labor or cost) required to achieve a given level of output It is possible to have very efficient service that is not effective or to have highly effective service that is not efficient In addition, the service can be both efficient and effective or inefficient and ineffective in attaining a given objective. The substantial amount of data available through Section IS reporting provides an opportunity to develop a large number of measures. Sets of performance indi'!ltors, effectiveness measures, and efficiency measures have been selected that are believed to IO

PAGE 25

provide a good representation of overall transit system performance. Other measures and categorizations may be developed with the same data. Table 1-1 lists the indicators and measures provided in this report for directly-operated transit services and also provides sub categories where appropriate. The extensive list of indicators and measures provides a voluminous amount of data, all of which are required to fully understand the performance of a transit system. 11

THE ROLE OF PRIVATIZATION Privatization is becoming increasingly important in the transit industry across the United States and in Florida. In 1984, no Florida transit systems contracted for the provision of fiXed-route motorbus service. However, in 1989, four Florida transit systems contracted with the private sector to provide some fixed-route service. The importance of privatization as it relates to this repon concerns the availability of data for these contractual services. 12

PAGE 27

Many of the measures that can be easily calculated for services that are directly-operated cannot be calculated for purchased motorbus since many performance indicators are unavailable. Table I 2 indicates generally what performance indicators are available for fixedroute, privatized transit as well those measu r es that can be calculated with these i ndicators.

II. >200 MOTORBUS VEHICLE CATEGORY A number of unique characteristics and the limited number of similar operations result in the selection of some peers that are significantly different than Miami in some respects. This is necessary since the objective is not to explicitly factor out all of the different characteristics among peers, but rather to compare systems that have some similar aspects. The chosen approach for MDTA involves the evaluation of each component mode's performance for some of the performance measures and evaluating total system performance for some of the measures. Thus, the MDTA peer review actually becomes a series of modal peer reviews including directly-operated motorbus, purchased motorbus, directly-operated and purchased motorbus (combined total), rapid rail, system total excluding purchased motorbus, and system total. Automated guideway was net explicitly reviewed since appropriate peers could not be identified. However, the performance of automated guideway is included in the system total reviews. This report does not restrict the peers for MDTA rapid rail to only those systems with similar, high capacity, exclusive right-of-way operations, but rather includes a variety of fixed guideway rail operations in a variety of operating environments. This allows for broader comparisons of the cost of providing and operating rail service. Each of the modal peer groups is listed below. The use of four digit abbreviations was necessary to bring about a consistent format for graphic reporting; hence, some of the acronyms differ from those commonly used.

    VI. SUMMARY In summaJY, the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) has conducted a performance evaluation of Florida transit systems under contract with the Office of Public Transportation Operations, Department of Transportation, State of Florida The performance evaluation includes a trend analysis (1984-1989) and a peer revi ew analysis (1989 data). This document (Pan D) is the peer review analysis while a separate document (Pan I) repons the results of the trend analysis. Peer review analysis is a common method of evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of transit systems and is essentially a comparison of a system's performance with the performance of similar systems or "peers" around the country. This document actually includes four separate peer reviews as a result of the various transit properties operating throughout Florida Each review provides tables of performance indicators and measures as well as graphics for selected indicators and measures. Comments and questions about this report can be directed to the Office of Public Transportation, Department of Transportation, State of Florida, 60S Suwannee Street, Mail Station 26, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-0450, Telephone: (904) 48&m4. 161

    APPENDIX A LIST OF DEFINITIONS PERFORMANCE INDICATORS County Population Used to approximate the service area population for each of the Florida transit systems and is taken from the 1990 Florida Statistical Abstract, with the exception of Smyrna Transit System (SMTS). The population of the city of New Smyrna Beach was used to approximate the service area population of SMTS. Although the transit authorities' actual service areas may not correspond exactly with the county boundaries, this measure provides a good approximation of overall market size for comparison of relative spending and service levels among communities. This is particularly true in Florida where transit systems are, for the most part, county-based. Natjonallnflat!on Rate Used to deflate the operating cost data to constant 1984 dollars. Inflation-adjusted dollars provide a more accurate representation of spending changes resulting from agency decisions by factoring out the general price inflation. The inflation rate reported is the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for all items (including commodities and services) from year to year. During the 1984 to 1989 period, service and labor costs tended to increase at a faster rate than did commodity prices. Therefore, transit operating expenses, which are predominantly comprised of service and labor costs, may be expected to have increased somewhat faster than inflation even if the amount of service provided were not increased Passeneer Trips Annual number of passenger boardings on the transit vehicles. A trip is counted each time a passenger boards a transit vehicle. Thus, if a passenger has to transfer berween buses to reach a destination, he/she is counted as making rwo passenger trips. Passeneer Miles Number of annual passenger trips multiplied by the system's average trip length (in miles). This number provides a measure of the total number of passenger miles of transportation service consumed Vehicle Miles Total distance traveled annually by revenue service vehicles, including both revenue miles and deadhead miles. 163

    PAGE 178

    Revenue Miles Number of annual miles of vehicle operation while in active service (available to pick up revenue passengers). This number is smaller than vehicle miles because of the exclusion of deadhead miles such as vehicle miles from the garage to the start of service, vehicle miles from the end of service to the garage, driver training. and other miscellaneous miles that are not considered to be in direct revenue service. Vehicle Uours Total hours of operation by revenue service vehicles including hours consumed in passenger service and deadhead travel. Revenge Uoua Total hours of operation by revenue service vehicles in active revenue service. Rogte Miles Number of directional route miles as reported in Section 15 data; defined as the mileage that service operates in each direction over routes traveled by public transportation vehicles in revenue service. Total Oge111tlna Expense Reported total spending on operations, including administration, maintenance, and operations of service vehicles. Total Ogentlna Expenses Cl2J4 ll Total operating expenses deflated to 1984 dollars for purposes of determining the real change in spending for operating expenses Total Maintenance Emense Sum of all expenses categorized as maintenance expenses; a subset of total operating expense. Total Maintenance Expense <19841l Total maintenance expenses deflated to 1984 dollars for purposes of determining the real change in spending for maintenance purposes. Total Cagital Expense Dollar amount of spending for capital projects and equipment. Total I.ocal Rmnue. All revenues originating at the local l eve l (excluding state and federal assistance). Ollfl'l!tin& Revenue Includes passenger fares, special transit fares, school bus service revenues, freight tariffs, charter service revenues, auxiliary transportation revenues, subsidy from other sectors of operations, and non-transportation revenues. 164

    PAGE 179

    Passena;r Fare Reyenges Revenue generated annually from passenger fares. Total Emuloyees Total number of payroll employees of the transit agency. It is useful to note that the increasing tendency to c:ontract out for services may result in some significant differences in this measure between otherwise similar properties. It is important to understand which services are contracted before drawing c:onclusions based on employee levels. All employees classified as capital were excluded from this repon. Transgonation Ooera!loc Employees All employees classified as operating employees: vehicle drivers, supervisory personnel, direct personnel. Maintenance Employees All employees classified as maintenance employeel\ who are directly or indirectly responsible for vehicle maintenance. Administrative Employees All personnel positions classified as administrative in nature. This repon includes all general administration employees (marketing, p lanning, and suppon) as classified by UMTA in Form 404. Vehicles Available Cor Maximum ServiceNumber of vehicles owned by the transit authority that are available for use in bus service. Vehicles Operated ip Maximum Service The largest number of v ehicles required fo r providing service during peak hours (typically the rush period). Spare Ratio Vehicles operated in maximum service subtracted from vehicles available for maximum service divided by vehides operated in maximum service. This measure is an indicator of the number of spare vehicles available for service. A spare ratio of approximately 20 percent is c:onsidered appropriate in the industry. However, this varies depending on the size and age of fleet as well as the condition of equipment. Total Gallops Consumed Total gallons c:onsurned by the vehicle fleet. Total KIIQl!l!t Hours or Po'Mr Kilowatt hours of propulsion power consumed by a transit system (rapid rail and automated guideway). 165

    PAGE 180

    Averas A&e or fleet Traditionally, a standard transit coach is considered to have a useful life of 12 years. However, l onger service lives are not uncommon. The vehicle age and the reliability record of the equipment, the number of miles and hours on the equipment, the sophistication and features (i.e., whee l chair lifts, electronic destination signs, etc.), and operating environment (weather, roadway grades and passenger abuse) all affect the maintenance needs and depreciation of the bus fleet. Number or Accidents Total number of reportable accidents resulting in property damage o r injury. Section 15 reporting procedures require that accidents be reported in three categories including collision accidents, non-collision accidents, and station accidents Total Roadcal!s A revenue service interruption during a given reporting period caused by failure of some mechanical element or other elemenL EFFECI'IVENESS MEASURES Vehicle Miles Per Cagl!a Total number of annual vehicle miles divided by the service area's population. This can be characterized as the number of miles of service provided for each man, woman, and child in the service area and is a measure of the extensiveness of service provided in the service area. Passensr Trigs Per Caglta Average number of transit boardings per person per year. This number is larger in areas where public transportation is emphasized and in areas where there are more transit dependents, and is a measure of the extent to which the public utilizes transit in a given service area. Passenur Trigs Per Rmnac Mile The ratio of passenger trips to revenue miles of service; a key indicator of service effectiveness that is influenced by the levels of demand and the supply of service provided. Passen&er Tr!gs Per Bmnue Hour The ratio of passenger trips to revenue hours of operation; reports on the effectiveness of the service since hours are a better representation of the resources consumed in providing service. 166

    PAGE 181

    Averaze Speed Average speed of vehicles in operation (including to and from the garage) calculated by dividing total vehicle miles by total vehicle hours. Revenue Mlles Between Accidents Number of revenue miles divided by the number of accidents; reports the average interval, in miles, between accidents. Revenue Miles Betwetn RoadcaUs Number of revenue miles divided by roadcalls; an indicator of the average frequency of delays because of a problem with the equipment. Revenue Miles Per Route Mile Number of revenue miles divided by the number of directional route miles of service. EFFICIENCY MEASURES OPerating EXPense Per Capjta -Annual operating budget divided by the county /service area population; a measure of the resource commitment to transit by the community. Opera!lng EXPense Per Peak Vebl!:le Total operating expense per vehicle operated in maximum service (peak vehicle); provides a measure of the resources required per vehicle to have a coach in operation for a year. Ooeral!ng Expense Per J!assenur TtiD -Operating expenditures divided by the total annual ridership; a measure of the efficiency of transporting riders; one of the key indicators of comparative performance of uansit properties since it reflects both the efficiency with which service is delivered and the market demands for the service. Operalin&. Emense l'er J!assencer Mile Reflection of operating expense divided by the number of passenger miles; takes into account the impact of trip length on performance since some operators provide lengthy trips while others provide short trips. Operaling Emens fer Bmnve Mile Operating expense divided by the annual revenue miles of service; a measure of the efficiency with which service is delivered and is another key comparative indicator. 167

    PAGE 182

    Opera!lne ElO!t!!se Per RI!Rnue Hour Operating expense divided by revenue hours of operation; a key comparative measure which differs from operating cost per vehicle mile in that the vehicle speed is factored out. This is often important since vehicle speed is strongly i nfluenced by local traffic conditions. Maintenance Expense Per Revenge Mile Maintenance cost d i vided b y the reven u e miles Maintenance Exoense Per Operatlne Expense Calculated by d i viding maintenance expense by operating expense; expressed as a percent o f total operating expense. Farebox Recovea Ratio of passenger fare revenues to total operating eXpenses; an indicator of the share of revenues provided by the passengers. Local Revenue fer Operating Exoense Ratio of total local commitment with respect to total operating expense. Operating RI!Rnue fer Open!lpg Exoense Operating ratio calculated by dividing operating revenue by total operating expense. Vehicle Miles Per Peak Vehicle Vehicle miles divided by the number of peak vehicles. It is an indicator of bow intensively the equipment is used and is influenced by the bus travel speeds as well as by the levels of service in the off-peak time periods. A more uniform demand for service over the day would result in a higber number.

    APPENDIXC PEER SELECIION PROCESS The methodology for the selection of peers for the statewide peer review is relatively simple in nature and is summarized in this section. The selection process is based on operating variables (number of motorbus vehicles in maximum service, vehicle miles, vehicle hours, average speed, route miles, number of days service is provided) as well as exogenous variables (geographic location, service area population, service area population density). The selection process also includes a final review to check for reasonableness and extraordinary conditions. This final review narrows each group to include approximately ten to twenty similar transit systems (including Florida transit systems). Figure C-1 illustrates the methodology.

    Although the peer review analysis was conducted using data reported in 1989 Section 15 reportS, the selection of peers was based on data reponed in the "1988 Urban Mass Transponation Administration Section 15 Repon. This was nece5Sal)' since 1989 data was not readily available for systems outside Florida. Once non-Florida transit systems were determined to be potential or backup peers, these systems were contacted directly in order to request a complete copy of their 1989 Section 15 repon. With the exception of Space Coast Area Transit and Tri-County Commuter Rail Authority, all Florida systems currently reporting Section l S data were placed into categories based on the number of vehicles operated in maximum service. Space Coast is a unique system that does not provide any fix e d-route service. In 1989; Space Coast reponed the operatio n of 58 vanpools and 41 demand-response vehicles in maximum service The characteristics of this system are not typical of Section 9 providers; therefore, it was determined that the inc l usion of Space Coast in the peer analysis would be inappropriate. Commuter rail was also excluded from this year's analysis. The Florida systems were grouped into categories based on a review of basic operating characteristics of the systems as well as several exogenous variables. The logic of grouping the systems into categories relates to the expectation that systems of similar size tend to have simi lar characteristics including comparable overhead, similar infrastructure, and similar levels of authority within the organizations. The variab les reviewed include the number of vehicles operated in maximum service, vehicle miles, vehicle hours, average speed, population, and population density. This data review resulted in the selection of four categories: 1 9 vehicles, 10-49 vehicles, S0-200 vehicles, and greater than 200 vehic les. Since four categories were established, four peer reviews were conducted. The next step was to select peers for each category from outside the state of Florida. An objective was to have at least as many non-Florida systems as Florida systems in each vehicle category. All systems that belong to one of the four categories above and reponed Section 15 data in 1988 were considered for peer selection. Systems in these potential peer categories that were outside the specified geographic location were immediately eliminated from each vehicle category except for the category with greater than 200 vehicles. The limited number of potential southeastern peers for the greater than 200 vehicle category necessitated the selection of some systems operating in other areas of the United States. Transi t systems operating in a similar geographic area are typically subjected to many of the same exogenous variables including weather, labor cost, historical transit ridership trends, and density. The specified geographic area basi cally included the southeastern part of the 176

    PAGE 191

    United States (including Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, MiMiMippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas ) as illustrated in Figure C-2. FIGURECl Geographic Area for Selection o f Peers Tex as While properties outsid e this area may be similar, this p r ovides a convenient m e thod for narrowing the range of syst ems for groups with an adequate DUDJber of peer choices H o we ver, when peer choice$ are r e l atively scarce, as in the greater than 200 v ehicle cat eg o ry it was necessary to take a somewhat different approach in the sele ction of peers. As discussed, a number of unique characteristics and the limited number of similar operations necessitated the selection of some peers that were significantly different than Miami in some respects. 1llis was not a problem since the objective in conducting the peer review is not to expli citly factor out all the different characteristics atnong peers, but rather to compar e systems that have some similar aspectS. These comparisons provide some insight for a b etter u ndersta ndi ng o f overall performance. The chose n approach involved evaluating each component mode's performance for . some of the performance measures and evaluating total system performance for some of the 177

    PAGE 192

    measures. ThUs, the Miami performance review actually became a series of modal peer reviews including directly-operated motorbus, purchased motorbus, directly-operated motorbus and purchased motorbus (combined total), rapid rail, system total purchased motorbus, and system total. Each review used those measures that could be calculated given the data available for the particular mode under consideration. No system is just like Miami in terms of the mix of modal technologies, however, if the focus is on the ability of the agency to provide transportation capacity and to meet travel needs, the techno l ogy differences are not necessarily more important than a myriad of other decisions that a given agency makes in detennining how best t o serve the customer. The relatively limited number of systems witbrail components argues for including all those that are similar and carefully itemizjng context differences so the reader will understand the differences when making various comparisons. In general, the candidate peers for Dade were chosen not only based on general similarities with respect to service supply and demand, but, for the vast majority of the variables, at least one city was chosen that closely corresponds with Miami for a given attn'bute. For Seattle bas virtually identical total system ridership, Houston bas virtually identical total operating costs, and Santa Clara County has a virtually identical number of vehicle miles of operation. 178
