FOREWORD Under contract with the Office of P U blic T ral!sportat ion Operations, Department of Transportation, State of Florida, the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) 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 Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) for each fiscal year by systems receiving Section 9 funding. UMTA, 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 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 iml'ortant to transit agencies. This report is one of three documen ts prepared as part of the performance evaluation project. In addition to this tec hnical memorandum (Part II, Peer Review Analysis, 1990), a second technical memorandum was prepared (Part I, Trend Analysis, 1984-1990). Finally a summary report was produced which highlights the information and findings of both technical memoranda. This is the third statewide transit evaluation conducted by the Florida Department of Transportation (FOOT) and CUTR. CUTR would like to thank FOOT and each of the individual transit systems for their cooperation and assistance in the preparation of the memoranda and summary report.

1990 PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF FWRIDA TRANSIT SYSTEMS PART II -PEER REVIEW ANALYSIS, 1990 I. INTRODUcriON 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 legislation requires the Florida Department of Transportation and Florida 's transit systems to develop and report performance measures. The relevan t Florida statutes are noted in F igur e 1-1. FLORIDA STATUTE 341.041 FLORIDA STATUTE 341.071 FLORIDA STATUTE 341.052 FIGURE 1-1 341.041 1880 SUPPLEMENT TO Ft.; (3) 'Develop, pubJlsh, and administer state measur&S oonoornlng system management. performance, produotivlty. dlstribulion, and safelY ot governmentally owned public transit systems. ..

Consistent with the legislation, this report provides an overview of the individual and collective performance of Florida's fiXed-route transit systems. There are eighteen systems that provide fixed-route motorbus services. Of these eighteen systems, fourteen 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 Transportation 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-based transit services only. The report is presented in two parts. Part I, Trend Analysis (separately bound), begins with a summary of statewide trends, followed by a consideration of the Florida fixed-route total trend. Part I also presents the performance trend for each of Florida's fixed-route transit systems over a seven-year time period (1984-1990). A variety of tabular and graphical data are included which portray the changes in several performance, effectiveness, and efficiency measures from the years 1984 to 1990. Appendix A provides a list of definitions of the terms used in the report. Appendix B presents a review of the specific sources for data used throughout the analysis. Part 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 1990.

Appendix B presents a review of the specific sources for data used throughout the analysis and is identical to Appendix B of Part I. In addition to these two parts, a separate summary report was prepared which highlights the information and findings of both technical memoranda.

A. THE 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 particularly strong in reviewing cost effectiveness and efficiency; however, it does not report on the extent to which other objectives of the transit authority are bei ng attained. For example, the performance evaluation will not directly measure several relevant considerations such as passenger satisfactio n with regard to levels of service, taxpayer and public att i tudes toward the agency, employee morale, success in atlaining minority h i ring or contracting goals, quality of planning, contributions to economic development, air quality improvements, or other goals that may be important 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, on-time 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 not. Figure 1-3 is a schematic of the factors that ultimately affect transit agency performance. 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 "hows" and "whys" of system performance. 6

B. PERFORMANCE REVIEW DATA BASE The major source of data for the performance review is Section 15 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 used by each transit authority For Florida properties, the fiscal year runs from October 1 through September 30. For other properties, the fiscal year may be differenl 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 Reliabilily All Section 15 data subntitted to FTA are subject to considerable review and validation through manual and automated methods. Each report is thoroughly examined to identify errors, questions, and inconsistencies. FTA identifies problems and requires each reporting agency to respond to these problems before the final report is accepted. The quality of the data published in FTA's "National Urban Mass Transportation Statistics Section 15 Annual Report" improves each year as transit systems become more fantiliar with collecting and reporting data and as definitions and procedures become more standardized. Despite the fact that the data are beconting 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 1990. 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 questions or inconsistencies. This review involved identifying irregularities in trends and numbers that 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. 8

PAGE 23

Additionally, a completed system data 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 Ff A were changed to reflect new information or refinements in definitions and data oollection. In some instances, transcription or other 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 II of thi s report consisted of data reported fo r 1990. 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 reasonab l eness 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 Jist of definitions for terms used by FrA 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 spite of these definitions and continued refinements in data collection procedures, there remain some discrepancies between systems as to how terms are defined and how information is collected. Accordingly, caution should be used in interpreting findings, especially for those variables that are more likely to be subject to va ri ation in definitions. Examples include some variation in the specific def i nitions o f "roadcalls" and "incidents used by the various properties. Other agencies differ in how employees are categorized among administrative, transportation, and maintenance tasks. Still other discrepancies can from differences in the organizational structure of the agency and the allocation of responsibilities among the various 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 services Differences such as this can result in a significant variation in operating costs. Numerous other, more subtle cost allocation differences can impact the data. For example, street sweeping and garbage pickup 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, 9

PAGE 24

engineering and design support, administrative 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 change 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 1990, '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 increase somewhat faster than inflation even if the amount of service provided were not increased. Performance Indicators 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 15 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 example, 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 15 reporting provides an opportunity to develop a large number of measures. Sets of performance indicators, effectiveness measures, and efficiency measures have been selected that are believed to 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. 10

II. >200 MOTORBUS VEIDCLE 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 not explicitly reviewed since appropriate peers could not be identified. 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 summary, the Center for Urban Tiansj>ottation 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 (1984-1990) and a peer review analysis (1990 data). This document (Part II) is the peer review analysis while a separate document (Part I) reports 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, 605 Suwannee Street, Mail Station 26, Tallahassee, Fl o r ida, 32399 0450, Telephone: (904) 488-n74. 141

    APPENDIX A LIST OF DEFINITIONS PERFORMANCE INDICATORS County Populatio n 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. National !nOatlon 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 1990 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 Trios 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 between buses to reach a destination, he/she is counted as making two passenger trips. P assenee r 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. Veh icle Miles Total distance traveled annually by revenue service vehicles, including both revenue miles and deadhead miles. 143

    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 Hours Total hours of operation by revenue service vehicles including hours consumed in passenger service and deadhead travel. Revenue Hours Total hours of operation by rev enue service vehicle s in active revenue sernce. &lute Miles Nu mber 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. TQtal Ex!!ens Reported total spending on operations, includ ing administration, maintenance, and operation of service vehicles.

    Total Employees Total number of payroll employees of the transit agency. It is useful to note that the increasing tendency to contract 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 conclusions based on employee levels. All employees classified as capital were excluded from this report. Tranmortation Operating Employees All employees classified as operating employees: vehicle drivers, supervisory personnel direct personnel. Maintenance Employees All employees classified as maintenance employees who are directly or indirectly responsible for vehicle maintenance. Administrative Employees All personnel positions classified as administrative in nature. This report includes all general administration employees (marketing, planning, and support) as classified by FfA in Form 404. Vehicles Available for Maximum ServiceNumber of vehicles OWIIed by the transit authority that are available for use in bus service. Vehicles Qperaled In Maximum Service -The largest number of vehicles required for 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 vehicles operated in maximum service. This measure is an indicator of the number of spare vehicles availab l e for service. A spare ratio of approximately 20 percent is considered appropriate in the industry. However, this varies depending on the size and age of fleet as well as the condition of equipment. Total Gallons Consumed Total gallons consumed by the vehicle fleet. Total Kilowatt Hours of Po.wer Kilowatt hours of propulsion power consumed by a transit system (rapid rail and automated guideway). A:e of Fleet-Traditionally, a standard transit coach is considered to have. a useful life of 12 years. However, longer 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., wheelchair 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. 145

    Number of Incidents Total number of unforeseen occurrences resulting in casualty (injury/fatality), collision, or property damage in excess of $1,000. For an incident to be reponable, it must involve a transit vehicle or occur on transit property. Total Boadcalls -A revenue service interruption during a given reporting period caused by failure of some mechanical element or other element. EFFECfiVENESS :MEASURES Y.e.bic)e Miles Per Capita 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. Trips Per Capita Average number of transit hoardings 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. Trios Per Revenue 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. Trips Per Revenue 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. Averaee Speed Average speed ofvehicles in operation (including to and from the garage) calculated by dividing total vehicle miles by total vehicle hours. Revenue Miles &tween Incidents Number of revenue miles divided by the number of incidents; reports the average interval, in miles, between incidents Revenue Miles Between Roadcalls 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 Milt -Number of revenue miles divided by the number of directional route miles of service 146

    EFFICIENCY MEASURES Operatin1: Emense Per Capita Annuai operatihg budget divided by the county /service area population; a measure of the resource commitment to transit by the community. Qperatinl: Expense Per Peal< Vehicle 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. Ooeradn1: Exoense Per Passen&er TriP 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 transit properties since it reflects both the efficiency with which service is delivered and the market demands for the service. Ooerat1n1: Exnense Per Passen11er 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. Operatinl: Expense Per Revenue 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. Qperatinl: E'Xpense Per Revenue 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 influenced by local traffic conditions. Maintenance Expense Per Revenue Mile Maintenance cost divided by the revenue miles. Maintenance Emnse Per Opera tina ExpenseCalculated by dividing maintenance expense by operating expressed as a percent of total operating expense. Farebox Recoven Ratio of passenger fare revenues to total operating expenses; an indicator of the share of revenues provided by the passengers. Local Revenue Per Operatine Exoense Ratio of total local commitment with respect to total operating expense. Ooeratin11 Revenue Per Operalinl: Expense Operating ratio calculated by dividing operating revenue by total operating expense. 147

    veb j cle Miles Per P eats vehicle-Vehicle miles divided by the number of peak vehicles. It is an indicator of how 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 period s A more uniform demand for service over the day would result in a higher number. Yebjcle Hours Per Peats Vehicle Substitutes vehicle hours for vehicle miles and again reflects how intens ively equipment is utilized Revenge Miles Per vehh:le Mile -Reflects how much of the total vehicle operation is in passenger service H igher ratios are favorable but garage location, training needs, and other considera tio ns may influence the rati o.
