This report documents and presents the research approach used in the development of the guidelines for the Public Transportation Facilities and Equipment Management System (PTMS). The research agency conducted a representative survey of stakeholders who are involved in developing a PTMS in various states, and combined this information with the latest advances in facilities management systems to develop a set of guidelines appropriate to states and transit agencies of all modes and scales. A step by step procedure for developing a PTMS is outlined in the guidelines, along with additional industry sources for measures and standards, and examples of analytical methods for evaluating the data collected.
