HAMPTON ROADS REGIONAL TRANSIT BENCHMARKING STUDY

DRAFT REPORT

A Multimodal Mobility task was incorporated into the HRTPO Unified Planning Work Program beginning in FY 2016 to focus some HRTPO staff resources on a variety of non-highway options for improving the movement of people and goods.  One of the activities under the Multimodal Mobility task specifically focuses on Regional Public Transit Planning.  HRTPO staff coordinated with staff from Hampton Roads Transit (HRT), Williamsburg Area Transit Authority (WATA), and Suffolk Transit to determine the best topic for the first study in the series.  Following those discussions, it was agreed that there was a need for a transit benchmarking study – the results of which would show how the performance of the transit agencies in Hampton Roads compares to peer agencies nationwide and provide a baseline against which future performance could be measured.

The Hampton Roads Regional Transit Benchmarking Study compares each of the three public transit agencies in Hampton Roads to “peer” agencies across the Nation for the following measures:

  • Ridership
  • Riders per Revenue Hour
  • Riders per Revenue Mile
  • Operating Expenses per Rider
  • Fare Revenue per Rider
  • Farebox Recovery Ratio

A number of the top performing peer agencies were selected for more in-depth case studies to identify likely reasons for their top-tier performance for the measures studied.
