Update - Annual Operating Report (AOR) Study - June 2024

For the last two years, the CTD contracted with Thomas Howell Ferguson (THF) to facilitate a study to improve the accuracy and analyses of performance data reported in the AOR. In September 2023, the first report, FCTD Ad-hoc AOR report 08/21/2023 was presented and approved by the Commission, which included a recommendation to test the collection of disaggregated (detailed) data as part of the AOR. In Spring 2024, THF created a prototype website and the Commission invited Community Transportations Coordinators (CTCs) to test the submission of their disaggregated AOR data for the purpose of this study. In June, THF presented its second report AOR Study 2 - Final Report to the Commission, which includes an overview of the study and discusses the feasibility of the test website, including analytical capabilities from the disaggregated data that was collected during the testing.

The Commission will receive a presentation on the second report and discuss recommendations for future AORs at the July 17, 2024, Commission Business Meeting. The recommendations will be included within the Commission Business Meeting Packet.
