TRANSIT RELIABILITY INFORMATION PROGRAM: PATCO-WMATA PROPULSION SYSTEM RELIABILITY/PRODUCTIVITY ANANLYSIS

The Transit Reliability Information Program (TRIP) is a government-initiated program to assist the transit industry in satisfying its need for transit reliability information. TRIP provides this assistance through the operation of a national data bank. This data bank collects, stores, and analyzes data generated by transit operators during the course of revenue service operation and equipment maintenance. The results of the periodic analyses of the stored data are distributed to TRIP participants and users. This report provides a description of the utilization of TRIP data as a tool for reliability/productivity analysis. The Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO) and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) are the participating transit authorities for which there is some maintainability data (labor hours by maintenance action) on the data base, thus restricting the reliability/productivity analysis to these two authorities.
