They show a 5% decrease in riders from 2017.
The year before (2017 vs 2016) showed a 9.3% decrease.
Before that the period from 2016 to 2015 showed another 9.2% decrease.
They reported that the cost per trip went up from $3.41 to $3.77, a ten percent increase. If you take the total amount of money that they were budgeted to spend for 2018 and divide it by the number of rides they reported, the cost per ride was actually $5.45.
