Greater Sudbury Transit Standards and Performance Indicators Available Online

16-Nov-2015

The Operations Committee of Greater Sudbury Council has received an overview of Greater Sudbury Transit service design standards, key performance indicators and reporting/monitoring service review processes. The Transit Standards and Performance Indicators Report is available online at www.greatersudbury.ca/transit

The tools identified in the report provide a foundation for a systematic assessment of public transit routes and requests for new, modified or extended services. Report highlights include:

  • Annual ridership counts from 2006 to a current level of 4.46 million in 2014.

  • Overall base service levels of 57 per cent, delivering a basic level of transit service regardless of ridership, and 43 per cent enhanced service levels, providing additional services to a higher number of riders.

  • A policy which outlines the criteria used to evaluate potential locations or requests for additional bus shelters.

  • Economic performance standards which measure the difference between operating revenues and operating costs, ridership performance standards which provide a measurement against target ridership, and operational performance standards which are compared with actual adherence to schedules.

  • Evaluation of Greater Sudbury Transit routes for ridership, hours and performance standards.

Citizens who cannot access the Transit Standards and Performance Indicators Report online may ask for a printed copy at their nearest branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library.
