Sun Metro’s management continues to provide their board (city council) with goals that they miss.
According to their numbers their cost per trip (passenger trip) in 2015 was $3.13. They set a goal of $3.00 for 2016.
Their results show that 2016’s cost per trip actually turned out to be $3.44.
Going into 2017 they told their board that their goal was $3.25 per trip.
Their actual number turned out to be $3.44.
They have done the same thing with the projected number of passengers.
During 2015 they reported 15,954,000 passengers (hard to believe isn’t it?) so they forecast 16,500,000 for 2016.
The 2016 number actually came in below the 2015 number at 14,696,000.
For 2017 they lowered their goal to 15,000,000 passengers and only achieved a number of 13,766,000.
We deserve better
