Customer Service Inquiries

In response to a recent inquiry regarding the maintenance of our fleet, below are facts about our vehicles in service.

  • Currently, the RTC has 405 fixed-route vehicles and 423 Paratransit vehicles in its fleet.
  • The cumulative average of our out-of-service fleet vehicles is 23%, which is near the Federal Transit Administration’s recommendation of 20%.
  • Mechanic staffing levels for all three classes (A, B and C) have stayed consistent for the past year.
  • Fifty streetcars within our fleet are five to six years old.

The RTC is requesting $38 million from its board of directors to purchase New Flyer buses in fiscal year 2017 to replace vehicles that have reached their end-of-life phase, not for additions to the current fleet.
