Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) required assistance with analyzing, developing, implementing, and managing an enterprise-wide Transit Asset Management Plan (TAMP). This $7 million TAMP established the requirements for managing transit assets as mandated by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The TAMP facilitated the development of decision-support tools supporting a reliability-centered maintenance program and State of Good Repair across all MDT asset classes. MDT’s goals were to improve its stewardship over its physical assets, identify risks, reduce maintenance and life cycle costs, make better-informed capital investment decisions, and enhance service quality by implementing the procedures and tools specified for this TAMP system.
PMA was paired with county subject matter experts, its Information Technology Department, and the MDT Operations and Maintenance Department to prepare a comprehensive TAMP. The plan improved business processes for managing assets and allocation/utilization of its resources; aligned the transportation and public works departments with the industry’s best practices, the FTA reporting requirements, and international standards.
