Such analysis shall include the relationship of specific planned capital elements to the achievement of such service and performance standards for each subway line, bus route or group of bus routes, or commuter rail lines, divisions or branches as appropriate.

2.

Each annual update of the plan shall include a status report summarizing the extent to which planned service and performance standards developed for the previous year were achieved, the causes of any failure to achieve projected standards of service, and corrective measures the authority intends to take to avoid non-achievement of projected standards in the next upcoming year.
