Asset Management Guide for Small Providers (Report 0092)

Author: FTA
Document Type: Report
Tags: Small Providers

This guide is a supplemental resource for small transit service providers that have fewer assets and fewer asset classes to maintain than larger agencies and substantially fewer resources to direct toward how their assets are managed. The guide:

  • focuses on descriptions to assets, practices, and requirements that are directly applicable to small providers 
  • allows for tailoring to address outliers (e.g., rural agencies that maintain sizable fleets) and incorporate related state-level requirements that may differ among states
  • provides a master template for small providers to develop TAM plans
  • offers example strategies and tips that can be applied to increase efficiency of day-to-day operations and maintenance efforts
