It measures the average Mobility miles between National Transit Database (NTD) reportable mechanical failures i.e., incidents precluding a Mobility 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.
