SamTrans Bus Maintenance Audits/Turnover Audits (Multi-Year)
The San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) recently awarded TRC another multi-year contract to conduct quarterly bus maintenance audits and turnover audits of its contracted Urban Bus Service (CUBS). This contract is designed to monitor the on-going fleet condition of 57 forty-foot transit buses that are contracted out to a private service provider. TRC conducts a full-scale audit of part of the fleet on a quarterly basis. This involves a physical inspection of the vehicles, testing of oil samples, a review of maintenance records, and the development of a comprehensive data base which records trend lines in fleet condition over time. The contract also provides for the performance of turnover audits of 100 percent of the fleet in the event of a change in service contractors.
