ADMINISTRATION, OPERATIONS AND ECONOMICS OF TRANSIT DIVISION, PORT AUTHORITY OF ALLEGHENY COUNTY, PITTSBURGH, PA
The primary objective is to present a critical review of Pittsburgh transit operations to determine what may eliminate unnecessary or unproductive elements of operating costs and to adjust the system to the needs of those who use it. Matters under study include economics of the Transit Division, schedule-making, ridership, patterns, cost/revenue relationships, and management. Recommendations are made on the basis of studies, which stem from three main perspectives: analysis of operations, a financial analysis, and an evaluation of alternatives. A history of the Port Authority of Allegheny County is included along with charts and maps.
