Important Contract Provisions8

Part time employees can work up to 35 hours per week. No provision determining split shift work exists but past practice does not include this practice.Overtime is inclusive of holiday’s, personal days, and guarantee time.

4 outsourcing subcontractors are used to the fullest extent of their current capacity for shared ride and limited fixed route service. Currently 54% of shared ride service is completed by sub-contractors.

Through past practice; light duty, fixed route split shifts and Saturday assignments are not conducive to reducing overtime.

Slide15

Other Future Cost Factors:

FactorsExplanation

Attracting

and retaining employees

is made challenging due to low wages, high responsibility, and changing work hours.

We have been unable to attract new drivers and have lost several drivers recently. This will continue to increase overtime costs or labor costs thru increased wages.New technology and multiple office locations are increasing administrative duties. Higher administrative costs will affect future performance as new reporting standards and technology increase responsibilities

Sub-Contractors

struggling

to remain in business due to employee turnover, increased distance between stops, and reduced trips

Decreasing

trips and increasing distances between stops has caused Sub-Contractors to struggle. Future rates will certainly reflect these new realities.

Insurance Costs

Recent workers compensation injuries have driven up overtime costs and will certainly

drive up future insurance costs.

Slide16

Cost Savings Initiatives:

InitiativeCurrent CostPlanned Action and Implementation DateProjected Savings

- Increase Sub-Contracting

in the Shared Ride program

- Consolidate Shared Ride Schedules and Reduce Current Vehicle Fleet

- Discontinue contract with current marketing firm

Evaluate using

Maintenance personnel to replace cleaning firm at Union Station

- Reduce parts

inventory

- Increase advertising revenue

- “Right Size” our fleet by better matching vehicle size with needs

Other Information/Assumptions:Fixed-Route - STS continues to try and find ways to help create new ridership, and, to convince our current customers to ride more often. Over the past several years we have worked with both the Penn State Schuylkill Campus, and, the McCann School of Business to promote Fixed Route Service to students traveling to and from school. This has been quite successful, and, has increased our ridership. A Monthly pass was introduced in July 0f 2011, and it seems to be catching on for those who are frequent riders of the system. We continue to try and find ways to promote our service, and, one project that we are currently working on is in regards to our current fare structure and trying to make it a little easier to understand. There have been basically no changes in main line routes over the past several years, but, some stops and some smaller feeder routes have been put into a “request for service.” We have recently updated our schedules to reflect the opening of our Union Station Terminal on June 27, 2011.

Shared Ride - The current shared ride program has been suffering some setbacks, especially in the area of MATP and other programs. Projecting revenue for this program have become quite difficult, as changes in policies associated with those who utilize transportation services are subject to change and cutbacks. To try and help offset some of these reductions, STS is attempting to promote group trips to senior organizations. We will review the current FY at the end of December to review our financial status, and, if necessary, we may again have to apply for a fare increase.
