That is a bizarre way of doing things. A rational way would be to calculate:

  1. The per km cost of providing service. This is largely independent of passenger load. An empty bus costs about the same to run as a full one.

  2. The average passenger-km revenue. Total fare revenue divided by total passenger-kms transported.

That provides a good basis to predict the cost of service. Revenue depends upon how many people transported, but allows "what-if" analysis to be done. In other words, if a new service runs so many km with an average of X people on board, we can calculate the revenue.
