TCRP Report 184: Maintenance Technician Staffing Levels for Modern Public Transit Fleets

TCRP Report 184: Maintenance Technician Staffing Levels for Modern Public Transit Fleets identifies existing tools and practices used to determine optimum maintenance technician staffing levels and provides an analysis of variables that influence maintenance technician staffing needs. The report also documents the research team’s development of an MS Excel based Maintenance Staffing Calculator, a tool for managers of transit agencies of any size to use in estimating the optimal number of bus maintenance staff to meet current maintenance needs. It may also be used as a predictive tool, to determine staffing needs during the vehicle procurement process.
