PROCEDURES FOR FINANCIAL ANALYSIS OF TRANSIT OPERATING ASSISTANCE GRANT REQUESTS

The increasing reliance of transit operations on financial support has caused funding agencies to begin to evaluate the operating expenses of transit operators seeking financial assistance. One possible evaluation approach involves comparing aggregate expenses estimates of individual transit properties with industry wide performance. This paper reports on the development of an evaluation framework that uses this approach. The evaluation technique is discussed, and specific administrative actions are illustrated in response to the operating expense performance of individual operators.
