Analysis of Performance
Total revenue hours for the quarter have increased by 1% over the same period in the prior year. In contrast, total ridership has declined quarter over quarter, thus the overall system is displaying an inflated decrease of 5.1% in passengers per revenue hour over the corresponding quarter in 2012. The year to date metric is just slightly ahead of the year to date metric in 2012 - 28.6 passengers per hour versus 28.5 passengers per hour. Looking forward and maintaining a status quo in the number of revenue hours through the end of the year, we anticipate narrowly missing our goal of 30.37 passengers per revenue hour.
