NORTHEAST CORRIDOR PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION DATA STUDY

Fourteen measures of performance are recommended for use in Northeast Corridor rail system evaluation and multimodal comparisons. These include performance measures in the categories of system configuration (e.g., daily available-seat miles by vehicle and segment), system performance (e.g., load factor by vehicle and segment) and system economics (e.g., cost per revenue-passenger mile by vehicle and segment). Although current data reported by certificated air carriers and participating passenger railroads are not entirely consistent, sufficient data exist to permit effective intra- and inter-modal evaluation and comparison. Certain disaggregation or allocation algorithms are recommended in some cases, however, to obtain travel segment data at the suggested aggregation level and frequency.
