P = N\$1, Qd = 250-60P
If the cost per vehicle kilometer is N\$1.60, average utilization 20 passengers per vehicle kilometer and average trip distance 10 kilometers:
1) the level of bus kilometers required to service this market is 190/20*10 = 85 thousands km.
2) the profits are TP = TR - TC = 1*190 - 1.6*85 = N\$54 thousands.
3) the profit of N\$54 thousands is abnormal.
4) the cost per passenger carried (as opposed to the cost per vehicle kilometer) is ATC = 136/190 = N\$0.72.
