TransLink Efficiency Report

I wrote a post on Civic Surrey about my thoughts on the TransLink Commissioner’s TransLink Efficiency Review that I invite you to read. I also found some interesting stats on the Revenue-Cost ratio from Calgary Transit. They also have a fare comparison on the same page. The higher the percent, the better.

Toronto: 477.4m 71%
Winnipeg: 45.2m 59%
Montreal: 388.6 55%
Calgary: 94.4m 53%
Vancouver: 211.3m 52%
Ottawa: 99.3m 52%
Mississauga: 30.6m 47%
Edmonton: 76.3m 44%

It would be interesting to know why Winnipegs cost recovery is so good without Metro or LRT and only buses (that are supposed to be more expensive to operate than LRT/Metro/Skytrain), and if we could learn from it.
