3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The regional peer report card was developed to provide context to the performance of the Chicago region s transit service by relating it to comparable peer regions from across the country. To accomplish this goal, the Regional Peer Review incorporates data reported to the National Transit Database (NTD) by all transit agencies that receive federal funding. This report includes published NTD data for calendar year 2013, the most currently available, which was published in January Peer regions were selected based on population, so that the top ten US metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) are represented: Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, with the Chicago metropolitan area being the third-largest. For each of the top ten regions, the main transit operators were determined so as to best represent each region s public transportation service. Chicago-area transit ranked in the top half of the peer regions in thirteen of the fifteen measures included in this report and as one of the top three performers for nine of the measures. Improvements in Chicago transit performance were seen for six measures, with improved rank positions for two of the measures reported. Particular strengths were noted for operating cost per passenger mile, for which Chicago transit ranked first among its peers for the third consecutive year, and significant improvements were noted for the capital expenditures measures, corresponding to major regional construction projects (e.g., CTA Red Line and Metra Englewood Flyover) and the acquisition of new rail cars. Some performance declines were noted for measures related to ridership; however, the Chicago region maintained its rank position for each service coverage measure. As shown in the following chart, eight of ten regions included in the peer review experienced declines in unemployment rates, while Chicago and Boston showed UNEMPLOYMENT RATE upticks from For 2013, the 15% Chicago region displaced Los Angeles 2013 rank: rank: 9 for the tenth-place ranking with an 10% unemployment rate of 9.1%. RTA system ridership, which had 5% experienced declines in 2009 and 2010, rebounded in 2011 and % coinciding with improvements in the unemployment rate, followed by unfavorable ridership results and an increase in unemployment in

4 Service Coverage Service Level Solvency Service Efficiency and Effectiveness Service Maintenance & Capital Investment Service Coverage: Chicago s rankings for all of the coverage measures have remained unchanged since Chicago placed in the top half compared to peer regions for each measure. Chicago region residents took 643 million trips in 2013, down 2.5% from 2012 due to a fare increase at CTA, the five-month shutdown of the south branch of the Red Line for complete reconstruction, and the coldest fourth quarter in over a decade. The Chicago region was one of five regions to see ridership decreases in 2013; however, Chicago residents traveled over four billion miles for the third consecutive year. Service Efficiency and Effectiveness: Chicago s rankings for each of the three efficiency and effectiveness measures remained unchanged from Although overall operating costs increased 2.1% in 2013, operating cost per unit of transit capacity remained at $0.128 and Chicago had the lowest operating cost per passenger mile of all the peers, as it had in 2011 and Service Maintenance and Capital Investment: The Chicago region s percentage of vehicles beyond minimum useful life declined by half a percentage point, yet its rank improved by two positions as other agencies statuses worsened. The Chicago region lost two rank positions for the performance measure miles between major mechanical failures, for which Chicago had ranked first from Upcoming scheduled vehicle replacements will likely lead to improvements for both measures of maintenance and capital investment performance. Service Level Solvency: The Chicago region saw improvement for four of five solvency measures, with capital program expenditures per area resident improving three rank positions. Implementation of a fare increase at CTA in January 2013 led to solvency improvements, even as ridership saw a decline in

5 SNAPSHOT The chart below shows the ranking of the Chicago-area transit operators for each performance measure contained within this report. Rankings are provided for 2012 and 2013 report years and reflect a scale of 1-10, with 1 indicating the most favorable performance. The right-most column illustrates changes in rankings from 2012 to 2013, with green arrows indicating a favorable change in rank position and red arrows showing an unfavorable change in rank position.

6 PEER SELECTION The peer group selected for use in the Regional Peer Review consists of the top ten metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) as defined by the US Bureau of the Census: Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. Population and land area data correlate to each MSA region. For consistency with the six-county RTA area, only the main transit properties serving each MSA were included in this report. PEER AGENCIES INCLUDED WITHIN METROPOLITAN STATISTICAL AREAS Geographic Region Chicago Atlanta Boston Dallas/Fort Worth Houston Los Angeles Miami New York Philadelphia Washington, DC Chicago Transit Authority, Metra, Pace Transit Agencies Included Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, Cobb County Department of Transportation Authority Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Fort Worth Transportation Authority Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County Access Services, Foothill Transit, Long Beach Transit, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, LACMTA Small Operators, Los Angeles Department of Transportation, Montebello Bus Lines, Omnitrans, Orange County Transportation Authority, Riverside Transit Agency, Santa Monica Big Blue Bus, Southern California Regional Rail Authority Broward County Transit, Miami-Dade Transit, PalmTran, South Florida Regional Transportation Authority All MTA operating agencies (Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Commuter Railroad, MTA Bus, New York City Transit, Staten Island Railway), Nassau Inter-County Express, New York City Department of Transportation, Port Authority Trans-Hudson, Suffolk County Transportation Division, Westchester County Bee-Line System Port Authority Transit Corporation, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority City of Alexandria DASH, Ride-On Montgomery County Transit, Virginia Railway Express, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority 5

7 NOTES/METHODOLOGY 1. This analysis is based on 2013 published data from the National Transit Database (NTD), the most currently available data, released on January 8, The data submission by transit agencies is a requirement of receiving federal funding and thus follows guidelines and procedures established by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). 2. The farebox recovery ratio used in this report follows the NTD definition, which is the proportion of operating costs that are covered by fare revenues paid by passengers. The NTD recovery ratio differs from the RTA recovery ratio, which takes into account certain adjustments as enumerated in the RTA Act such as the exclusion of various costs, the treatment of depreciation, and the inclusion of in-kind services. The RTA recovery ratio also includes system-generated revenue other than fares in its formula calculation. Furthermore, the RTA Act requires that Pace ADA Paratransit costs and revenues be separated from the RTA recovery ratio and meet its own statutorily-set recovery ratio. 3. The transit agencies included within each peer region have been chosen to represent the primary transit operators of each region. In an effort to standardize what comprises the primary transit properties, agencies with annual ridership under four million were excluded with the exception of Los Angeles Access Services, Inc., which provides more than half the paratransit trips of that region, is under the umbrella of the LACTMA, and mirrors Pace ADA paratransit in its function. 4. New Jersey Transit, which serves both the New York and Philadelphia regions, has been excluded from this and prior year reports because there is no way to disaggregate the data between the two urban areas. As a result, there is some under-representation of transit service for these urban areas. Similarly, the Maryland Transit Administration, which primarily serves the Baltimore region and also serves the DC area, has not been included in this or prior reports as its operating data cannot be divided among the DC and Baltimore metropolitan statistical areas. As a result, Washington, DC metropolitan area transit service is slightly understated. 6
