Rail Passenger Transportation

Commuter Train L. E. Peabody & Associates, Inc. has been involved continuously in mass transportation and commuter rail service for the past six decades. The Firm's involvement in commuter costs, service and operations began in the 1950's. Since that time, L. E. Peabody & Associates, Inc. has conducted numerous avoidable cost studies of commuter operations, and we have been involved in the evolution of rail passenger service costing methodologies. We have assisted passenger agencies in federal and state rule-making proceedings which established guidelines for determining commuter service costs.
We have assisted numerous commuter agencies in preparing Facilities Utilization Plans, Manpower Utilization Plans, and Force Re-deployment Analyses that are the basic building blocks to determine the cost of providing rail passenger service. We have developed detailed costing procedures which utilize specific railroad accounting systems. We have been involved in passenger revenue and ridership issues as well as liability and risk management for commuter agencies.
