T Running Costs?

Postby Elcamo » Wed Oct 30, 2013 11:25 pm

Is there anyway to find out the T's running costs on CR lines? I keep finding budget after budget pdf online but cant seem to find anything. Just curious how much it costs them to run each train, and the difference between the locomotives/car lengths and routes. How much gas they use up per trip would also be interesting too.

Not sure if any of this is public record, hopefully you guys can help or at least point me in the right direction.

Since the CR is contracted it's grey area. The fuel is provided by the MBTA but the staffing costs are done via the contractor. The most info you will get is through the bid to be the operator.
