BUS AND RAIL ROLLING STOCK, EQUIPMENT IN METROPOLITAN CHICAGO
A computer-assisted inventory procedure was developed as a tool in formulating the rolling stock renewal component of the mass transit priority program in metropolitan Chicago. A computer tabulation of each unit was compiled, using standards provided by the individual carriers to estimate the functional economic life of vehicles in the existing transit fleet. Results of the rolling stock inventory are broken down among bus, suburban rail, and rapid transit modes with reference to fleet size, vehicle manufacturers, and various equipment conditions such as air conditioning. The author notes that annual updates of this report are anticipated.
