Analysis of Passengers per The correlation between passengers per revenue-hour and Revenue-Hour versus Transit Use income shows clearly that as the level of income declines, Factors the number of passengers per revenue-hour rises. This noticeable inverse relationship confirms standard transit An analysis was used to assess performance of services in a use theory, which says that lower income, particularly in single region. The community of Margate in Broward County, areas of higher population density, increases transit use. Florida, demonstrates how a network of suburban services can The elderly and student-age segments are both positively be developed and what performance can be expected as a correlated to passengers per revenue-hour. This finding result of an areawide analysis. also confirms transit use theory, though in this sample set, The relationships between passengers per revenue-hour and the relationship is minimal to nonsignificant. However, such measures as population density, income, the elderly seg- ment of the population, the student-age segment of the popu- Table 5-4.
