Farebox, APC, and AVL Data Analysis

Warner Transportation Consulting has conducted numerous data collection and analysis studies for transit agencies around the country, and we have the sense that many agencies are not taking full advantage of data from their fareboxes, APC, and AVL systems. This information can be very useful for planning and operations, and--for just a few thousand dollars--can form the basis of a comprehensive operational analysis.

The table below shows the type of reports we can produce from this data. We prepare all charts and maps in color, and bind the document for ease of use. Turnaround time will generally be less than a week after receiving your data.


 

Item

7.  Route productivity tables

8.  Passenger on-off charts

Passenger on-off data*

$60 per route, direction, and time period; e.g., weekday, 20 routes =$2400

* Note that we can also combine APC, fare box and AVL data to estimate an on-off, segment-segment, or TAZ-TAZ matrix. The result is far more robust--and generally less biased--than what you would get from a comprehensive passenger survey, and it comes at a small fraction of the cost.
