Use the dropdown menus to compare the cost per boarded passenger of any two bus routes in Metro Vancouver.

To learn about factors influencing cost effectiveness and ridership potential, select the Other Information tab which contains details about average daily boardings, annual service hours, and population and job density near the route.

Note: a boarded passenger does not equal a fare passenger. A boarded passenger is counted once at initial boarding and again at each subsequent transfer, thus not every boarded passenger represents a fare intake.
