8 Why Invest in SR 50 BRT? 8

9 SR 50 BRT is a Cost-Effective Investment 9 Measures Existing (2010) Future No-Build 1 Future BRT Alternative 1 Frequency 15 Min. Peak/ 30 Min Off Peak 15 Min. Peak/ 30 Min. Off Peak 10 Min. Peak/ 15 Min. Off Peak Capital Cost $0.8M $36M Annual Operating Cost (FY 2014$) $9.8M$10.6M (+$0.8M 2 ) $11.8M (+$2 M 2 ) Corridor Ridership (Typical Weekday) 8,50013,70014,300 3 1 Operating costs for future scenarios include SR 50 BRT Initial Operating Phase and Local SR 50 Routes but does not include Express Bus between Downtown & UCF Area. 2 Compared to Existing Conditions Costs, (+$XX) = incremental difference 3 Based on conservative ridership estimates based on 2010 on-board survey data

10 10 Average Travel Time Savings Compared to Base Year (2010) Per Weekday Trip7 minutes Per Peak Trip6 minutes Per Off-Peak Trip7 minutes SR 50 will improve Quality of Service for Existing Transit Riders
