ANALYSING TRANSPORTATION PUBLIC AGENCIES PERFORMANCE USING DATA ENVELOPMENT ANALYSIS

Performance analysis has gained increased attention now that transit organisations are emphasising efficiency and effectiveness objectives. In this paper the use of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) as a tool for assessing the performance of Italian transit agencies and to compare them is focused upon. By using a single measure for cost efficiency, cost effectiveness and service effectiveness, the DEA model is applied to a sample of 63 Italian transit agencies serving both large metropolitan areas and medium and small cities.
