Maryland Transportation System Performance Dashboard 2018 Annual Attainment Report Highlights

Goal: System Preservation


  • Preserve and maintain State-owned or supported roadways, bridges, public transit, rail, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, port, airports and other facilities in a state of good repair.

Select a Measure:

What We Measure:

Fleet Age of transit vehicles used to transport patrons (revenue vehicles).

Why We Measure It:

The average fleet age of revenue vehicles is used to understand the status and age of the fleet used to transport patrons. Calculating fleet age informs the agency of the age of vehicles used in revenue service indicating fuel consumption, energy efficiencies, preventative maintenance needs and repair expectations.

Why Did Performance Change?

  • Acquired 77 new Mobility small, cut-away buses during FY 2017
  • The entirety of the MDOT MTA’s Light Rail Vehicles began a mid-life overhaul in FY 2018
  • MARC continues to overhaul vehicles 

What Are Future Performance Strategies?

  • Overhaul MARC railcars and procurement of new diesel locomotives in accordance with manufacturer’s schedule of retirement to maintain a state of good repair
  • Continue with Light Rail’s ongoing mid-life inspection and renovation to ensure vehicle reliability and useful life
  • Enhance passenger comfort and conveniences, ensure better reliability, reduce system failures and offer improved safety through 
    the replacement of all Metro vehicles and overhaul of Metro signaling systems
  • Procure replacement vehicles and equipment repair for Mobility Paratransit
  • Maintain the average age of the bus fleet ($256.0 million in the FY 2018–FY 2023 CTP for Bus Procurement)
