It measures the average bus miles between National Transit Database (NTD) reportable mechanical failures i.e., incidents precluding a revenue vehicle from completing its trip, or starting its next scheduled trip. Currently, all mechanical breakdowns are counted as failures, thus exceeding the number of failures reported to NTD.

In May, met the Target; the actual being 4,322 miles. The overall number of breakdowns increased by 1% from 577 in April to 585 for the month of May (this increase was offset by the bigger increase in the number of miles run by the bus fleet). The number of Engine system failures increased by 9%, that of HVAC system increased by 6%, that of Cooling system increased by 6% and that of Brake system increased by 9%.
