Rehabilitation of Buses ($228.2 Million)

During the first 7½ years of life, a Metrobus will accumulate approximately 300,000 miles. Metro routinely conducts mid-life overhauls on each bus at 7½ years to extend a bus’ useful life to 15 years by replacing components at the end of their useful life. On average, Metro rehabilitates 100 buses per year.

Under this rehabilitation project, the bus engine, transmission and elec-

tronics are all rebuilt by Metro employees restoring the bus to an “as new” condition. Like many other large US transit agencies, Metro rebuilds a bus at mid-life due to better service reliability (fewer breakdowns) and lower overall maintenance cost. This program reduces the replacement cycle and decreases Metro’s bus replacement needs from approximately 120 buses a year to 100 buses a year. Metro’s bus rehabilitation needs over the next ten years totals $228.2 million.

Vehicle Replacement Components ($175.8 Million)

Metro requires an inventory of replacement parts to maintain its fleet of vehicles in a state of good performance. Capital replacement components are needed once an item cannot be refurbished and re-used, to address fleet composition changes and to meet federal regulations (e.g., technology upgrades dictated by EPA). Bus reha- bilitation components support Metro’s mid-life rehabilitation program, destination sign replacement, hybrid/electric battery replacement and soot filter replacement programs. Examples of bus rehabilitation components include alternators, transmis- sions, engines, coolers, driver’s seats, cylinder heads, fan motors, and radiator assem-

blies. Rail rehabilitation components are assemblies that can be removed from the rail cars and refurbished (e.g., traction motors, brake assemblies, heaters, electronic
