- Transit Research
During the State of Good Repair Roundtable in 2010, FTA expressed a growing concern that a significant proportion of the nation’s public transportation assets was in need of capital reinvestment to continue to meet the demand of the American public.
￼￼To address this need, CodeRed Business Solutions Inc. (CRBS) and
its primary teammate, St. Louis Metro, were selected to receive a
research and technology grant from FTA. This research summarizes
the results of the 13-month effort to consider how urban rail transit agencies can leverage data within their maintenance management systems to build asset inventories for higher-level analysis.
The research goals/objectives were to provide FTA with a plan or road map of how transit agencies can leverage existing asset management and maintenance data, regardless of which asset management
or maintenance data collection system the agency employs. To achieve this goal, the team developed asset inventory structures, data elements, and hierarchical relationships.
