905 region BRT and LRT schemes

Our evaluation of the 905 region BRT and LRT schemes is based mostly on the Metrolinx Benefits Case Analyses. These are generally concise and credible, although as with the Transit City schemes, most do not explicitly state the new daily ridership that will be generated. We use Metrolinx’s estimates for costs, revenues, and benefits, and our own estimates of new riders, to calculate the net financial cost per new rider. Our estimates are summarized in Table A11 in the Appendix.
