FOREWORD Under contract with the Office of Public Transportation Operations, Department of Transportation, State of Florida, the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUIR) has conducted a performance evaluation of Florida's fixed-route transit systems. This report is based on data from federally-required Section 15 reports, which are submitted to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for each fiscal year by systems receiving Section 9 funding. FTA, which has 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 standardi2ed, undergo extensive review, and are the result of a substantial data collection and reporting process by the transit systems. Some Section 15 dara are used by FTA 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 two documents prepared as part of the performance evaluation project. In addition to this technical memorandum (Part n, Peer Review Analysis, 1991), a second technical memorandum was prepared (Part I, Trend Analysis, 19841991). This is the fourth statewide transit evaluation conducted by the Florida Department of Transportation (FOOl) and cum.. CUIR would like to thank FOOT and each of the individual transit systems for their cooperation and assistance in the preparation of the memoranda.

B. PERFORMANCE REVIEW DATA BASE The major source of data for the perfonoaooe re'liew is Secti<>n 15 report&. To receive federal funds, kallSit properties are required to report a variety of data in a siaodardized format, resultiog in what is lcnowo as a Se<:tion 15 report. These reports provide standardized measures of reporting tbal eoable a more accurate comparison of information between properdes. Since 1979, wheo this reporting requirement was iostituted, ado. lo some instaooes, transcription or other errors were discovered in lhi data. lo other instances, erroneous data frOm previous years wblcb could not be el of attention to data review was eoosidcrably greater for Florida properties than for peer properties from outside the state. The data used for peer comparison in Part 11 of this report coosisted of data re ported for 1991. Since these data are more recent, they are expected to be of higher quality. The absence of tteod data for non-Florida systems precluded applying many of the reuonableness tests to the peer data thai were applied to lhe data of Florida's kai1Sit systems. Data Dtflnllfops T o fully understand the data presented in this report, i1 is important to understaod the definitlous of the terms used in Section 1S documellls. In many instances, these definitions differ from initial perceptions and may be subject to interpretati011. Appendix A provides a detailed list of defioltioos for terms used by PI' A. 7

The data collection procedures further specify exactly what is being referred to by a given tOTm. For example, passenger trip" refers to an indMdual boarding a vehicle. A person riding a bus from the ..,_ to the offiee takes one passenger trip to work and a second passenger trip to retum bome. Likewise, a person who takes a bus, tranSfers to Metrorail, and then transfers to MetrcmOYer would be couated as takiDg throts that may or may 00( be aeeurately allocated between the transit system and a parent governmental body. The national inflation rate, as deflDed by the percentage change in tbe Consomer Price Index (CFl) for an items (including commodities and servioes) from year to year, was used to deflate cost indicators so tbat they could be presented ill real terms. From 1984 through 1991, service aod labor e<>ots tended to increase at a faster rate than did commodity price$. Therefore, transit operating expenses, wbicb are predominantly comprised of serviee aod labor eoou, may be expected to i.ocrease somewhat raster than inflation even if the amount of service pnwided were oat increased. Ptrformaotent to wbieb various serviocrelated goals are being achieved. For example, passenger trips per i.s an indicator of the effeetiveoess of the ageoey in meeting transportation needs. Efficieoey measures involve reviewing tbe level of resources (labor or C Section 1.S reporting provides ao opportunity to develop a large number oC measures.

C. TH ROL OF PRIVATIZATION becoming lntteasingly important in the transit industry across the United S t ates and in Florida. In 1984, no F1orida transit systems contracted for the provision of faxed-route motorbus service. HO"Ne\o'Cr, i.n 1990, six Florida transit systems contracted with the private sector to provide some f.xed ro u te service. In 1991, the number of florida systems cootraeting (or fixed-route sei"Vi bas declined to only two. Tbe importance of privatization as it relates to tbis report concerns the of data for these contractual scrvi<:les. Many or the measures that can be easily calculated for sen-ices that are cfuectly-operated cannot be calculated for purchased OJOtorbus since many performance indicators are Wlavailable.

IL >200 MOTORBUS VEHICLE CATEGORY A number of tmique characteristics and the limited number of similar operations result in the seledion of some peers that are signifieaotly different than Miami in some respects This is neplicitly factor out all of the different characteristics among peers, but rsther to compare systems thar have om s imilar aspects. The cbooen approach for MDTA involws the evaluatioo of each component mode's performance for some o f the performance measwes and evaluating total system performance fo1 $01De of tbe me .. ores. Thus, the MDTA peer review actually beeomeo a series of modal peer reviews including directly-operated motorbus, purchased motorbus, directly-operated and purchased motorbus ( oombined total), rapid rail, system total excluding purchased motorbus, and system tot al. Automated guideway Wll$ oot explicitly ...mwed since appropriate peen could oot be idcotified This report does not restrict the peers for MDTA rapid rail to only those oyotems with similar, bigjl capacity, exclusive right-of-way operations, but rather includes a variely of fixed guideway rail operations in a variely of operating enviroomeots. This allows for broader eomparisoos of the cost of providing aod operating rail service. Each of the modal peer groups is listed below. Tbe use of four digit abbreviations was necessary to briog about a cousisteru format for graphic reportiog; beooe, some of the acrooyms differ from those oommonly used.
