the TTI methodology defines public transportation as "regular route service from all public transportation providers in an urban area". I.e. operation costs, not capital costs.

No, NOT "i.e. operation costs." The cost of providing "regular route service from all public transportation providers in an urban area" includes both capital costs and operating costs. Your claim that you can simply ignore the costs of purchasing the transit vehicles, building rail track and stations, etc., just doesn't make any sense.
