Program Description

  Transit Equipment Services

Transit Equipment Services (TES) provides scheduled and non-scheduled maintenance and repair of the Ride-On Bus fleet at three locations; Brookeville Maintenance Facility (BMF), Equipment Maintenance and Transit Operation Center (EMTOC) and Small Transit Shop (STS). TES supports FLASH, the new bus-based rapid transit system with features that improve reliability and capacity, FLEX, the new on demand transit service that helps residents get around in defined Rockville and Glenmont /Wheaton zones, and Electric buses. TES implemented a preventive maintenance contractor-based business model which supplemented operations and increased capacity to meet federally mandated requirements. The Transit technician on-boarding and training program contributed to improved equipment availability and injury reduction.
