If maintenance becomes more cost efficient, overall cost reductions and service quality improvements are possible. Direct comparisons among systems are not generally useful, because cost variations are largely a function of factors that are determined by system operating characteristics and the environment in which the system operates, and are mostly outside the system operator's control. In this paper, the relationship and effect of these factors on vehicle maintenance efficiency and productivity components are explored. A cross-sectional analysis is performed through a set of regression equations that may be used by transit managers as a tool to identify and diagnose the sources of their maintenance policies.
