One thing that really strikes me is just how many more people the two subway{% capture sidenote %}I'm just going to say "subway" to refer to both the MFL and BSL for convienence{% endcapture %}{% include "sidenote.liquid" %} lines cary compared to anything else in the system!
### Median Ridership By Vehicle Type
Vehicle Type | Median Weekday Riders | % Change from 2018
:---------------- | ---------------------: | ---------------------------:
Subway | 145,613 | -0.1%
Trolley | 11,717 | 0.4%
Rail | 9,917 | -2.6%
Trackless Trolley | 4,425 | -4.2%
Bus | 2,503 | -5.3%
A typical single bus line in the <span style="font-variant:small-caps;">septa</span> system moves about 2,500 people a day, while a subway line can move over 100,000 daily.
Though there are a lot of buses, and only two subway lines. Comparing the totals instead:
### Total Ridership By Vehicle Type
Vehicle Type | Total Weekday Riders | Number Of Routes
:---------------- | ----------------------: | ---------------:
Bus | 473,494 | 125
Subway | 291,227 | 2
Rail | 131,115 | 14
Trolley | 79,037 | 8
Trackless Trolley | 17,828 | 3
_Total:_ | 992,701 | 152
Out of the almost one million riders a day, nearly half are moved by a Bus.

## Ridership Change
Most of the lines seemed to have a small decrease in ridership, though a couple had massive gains. If we take the total ridership numbers between 2019 and 2018 we can make a histogram of the changes

## Costs
There is also some interesting data around both revenue and total expenses per route, so we can look at the cost to run a route compared to how much money it makes from fares.
On the whole, <span style="font-variant:small-caps;">septa</span> only makes about a third of its expenses from passenger revenue (fares){% capture sidenote %}
From <span style="font-variant:small-caps;">septa</span>'s FY 2019 Operating Budget:
<br>
<br>_Passenger Revenue_: **$470.5 Million**
<br>_Total Expenses_: **$1,453 Million**
<br>_Overall Operating Ratio_: 32.4%
<br>_Operating Deficit (before subsity)_: $942.6 Million
{% endcapture %}{% include "sidenote.liquid" %}. But some lines are more profitable than others.
In general both costs and revenue scale with how many people ride a route. The busier it is, the more vehicles have to be deployed, with more operators, and more maintenance needed. Here we can see how it scales up.
<figure class="">
<img src="septa_ridership_files/septa_ridership_26_0.svg" />
</figure>
But notice that mode matters. Here the regional rail (blue) costs are sigificantly higer than the bus (red) baseline.
However in 2019 <span style="font-variant:small-caps;">septa</span> had a entierly different fare structure for regional rail than for busses or trollies. The rail system was zoned so longer trips cost more. If instead we look at the operating ratio&mdash;i.e., how much money a line makes compared to its cost&mdash;we see that the mode split goes away, and that there is much less of a correlation with ridership.

## Maps
With ridership data we can make a map of the system, but drawn with line widths and colors scaled to the ridership numbers.
<figure class="fullwidth">
<a href="img/overview_map.png" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none;background:none;text-shadow:none">
<img src="img/overview_map_small.jpg">

Zooming into just the core of Philadelphia
<figure class="fullwidth">
<a href="img/downtown_map.png" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none;background:none;text-shadow:none">
<img src="img/downtown_map_small.jpg">
</a>
</figure>
We can also see if there is a geographic component to the change in ridership numbers.
<figure class="fullwidth">
<a href="img/change_in_ridership.png" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none;background:none;text-shadow:none">
<img src="img/change_in_ridership.jpg">
</a>
</figure>
It's hard to see any one particular region that gains riders more than another. West Philly might be a touch more green, but the most popular lines are the ones that we might expect (lines that connect with center city or with major transportation centers).
