TCRP Synthesis J-07/Topic SA-03 [Final (Synthesis)]

System-Specific Spare Rail Vehicle Ratios
[ TCRP J-07 (Synthesis of Information Related to Transit Practices) ]

  Project Data

TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Synthesis 15: System-Specific Spare Rail Vehicle Ratios addresses the system-specific variables that directly impact fleet size, and the spare ratios that are maintained by individual transit agencies. From the information obtained, it appears that most rail transit agencies closely monitor the spare vehicles they maintain to maximize efficiency and thereby reduce operating costs.  This topic is published at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=2446
