Investment Category: Performance

Investments to address Metro’s Performance needs total $7.6 billion over the next ten years (FY 2011- 2020). Performance projects maintain and replace assets on a life cycle basis. They promote safety and reliability and preserve the current levels of service. These projects keep Metro in a “State of Good Performance” - assets are not simply replaced with an exact replica, but with assets that take advantage of the latest technology and materials. For example, diesel buses will be replaced with cleaner technology buses and inefficient fleet maintenance facilities will be replaced with environmentally friendly buildings. Key Performance needs include the replacement of older rail cars, buses and vehicles, rehabilitation of sections of the rail system that are more than 30 years old, track rehabilitation, MTPD equipment and facilities and information tech- nology system upgrades.

Metro’s FY 2011 – 2020 Performance needs are driven by several factors. For the first time in the agency’s history, Metro is faced with rehabilitating or replacing original capital assets. For example, sections of the rail system that opened for

service in 1976 will soon reach the end of their life cycle and must be rehabili- tated. Similarly, the 1000-Series rail cars that were purchased when the system

was built need to be replaced and a program of regular rail car replacement must be instituted. In addition, according to Board policy adopted in June 2006, Metro’s target is to achieve an average bus fleet age of 7½ years and a maximum age f h h l th f b fl h o 15 years. T is means t at Metro strives to rep ace 1/15 o its us eet eac year, or approximately 100 buses each year. Metro’s policy reflects the approach
