TRANSIT ACTIONS--TECHNIQUES FOR IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY AND PERFORMANCE

This workbook contains actions which can cut the costs of providing transit services or improve system operating efficiency and effectiveness. The included actions represent only a few of the many steps which will have to be taken over the next few years to narrow the growing gap between farebox revenues and operating expenses. Some of the actions are innovative, others, such as the use of part-time labor, and the designation of free-fare zones, have been considered for a long while but are now being tried on a large scale. The 41 actions included here are representative of the 110 actions submitted by 31 agencies. They are included because they required a low capital investment, had short-term payoffs, required minimal staff time, or involved minimal institutional approval. The remaining actions may be clarified or expanded during the Transit Actions Regional Meetings so that they might be included in the final Transit Actions Workbook. This preliminary workbook will be the starting point for five workshops at the regional meetings, covering: service levels, transit financing policies, internal management, labor-management relations, and performance measures. /Author/
