I've never seen the unit costs for MTA express service. I have the ridership numbers for all the SI express and as of April 2001, most carry around 30 passengers on average. I'll reserve my judgment until I see those costs.

As a private operation, the routes would still lose money, but they would lose a lot less of it. The X17 and X19 could probably break even and have a cookie cutter profit. Most of these routes aren't yet optimized (a bus lane would really help as well as route adjustments in Manhattan).

I'll check and get back to the group.
