TFCA-R SHUTTLE/FEEDER SERVICE GRANT APPLICATION FOR

82X LEVI PLAZA EXPRESS


Methodologies Employed for Various Calculations

1. Total Project Cost Calculation:


The total project cost was calculated by using SFMTAs defined FY12 hourly rate per
mode amount for motor coaches, which is the vehicle type that is used on the 82X
route. Specifically, the FY12 total hourly rate per mode ($169.76) was multiplied by the
82Xs number of operational hours per day (17) and by the number of operational
service days in a year (253). Since SFMTAs hourly modal rate increases by about three
percent each year, this product was multiplied by 1.03 and then by 1.03 again to reach a
total FY14 cost projection of $774,585.45.
2. Ridership Estimate:
The annual ridership estimate for the 82X is based on automated passenger count (APC)
data. Specifically, APC-equipped vehicles that operate on the 82X route provide actual
ridership counts. The ridership data used in this application is derived directly from
these actual APC statistics.
3. Percentage of Passengers that Previously Drove Alone:
This percentage was taken from MTCs Commuter Profile, which shows that 70 percent
of San Mateo County commuters drive alone as their primary commute mode. Since
many of the 82Xs riders are residents of San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties, and
because this percentage is the lower of the two counties statistics, this more
conservative Commuter Profile-based estimate is most accurate.
4. Average One-Way Commute Distance of Riders that Previously Drove Alone:
This calculation was derived from SFMTAs on-board surveys of 82X riders, which state
that riders who previously drove one-way to their destinations traveled in their cars for
an average of 28 miles.

5. Percent of Passengers or Participants that Drive to Access Service or to Reach Final


Destination:
Due primarily to a lack of available parking and convenience within its corridor, the 82X
is not expected to have riders that drive a vehicle for the purpose of directly accessing
the service.
6. Average One-Way Trip Distance Driven to Access the Service or to Reach Final
Destination:
Due primarily to a lack of available parking and convenience within its corridor, the 82X
is not expected to have riders that drive a vehicle for the purpose of directly accessing
the service.
7. Total Annual Revenue Service Miles:
The annual revenue service miles total was derived from the previous years actual 82X
total, which is 36,000. Since no changes are being proposed to the 82Xs current
schedule, the annual revenue service miles total is expected to remain the same.
8. Total Annual Miles:
The annual miles total was calculated by multiplying the annual revenue service miles
total by 1.05.

Ridership data comes from Automatic Passenger Count (APC) data. The ridership figures are generated through an automated report, and there is
no survey data as there is when SFMTA uses manual traffic checker data. APC data is provided because there are many more data reliability and
accuracy checks performed, and line ridership figures are more accurate with the APC data. SFMTA produces monthly line ridership figures, which
are then used to develop the annual figures.
