Rail Mean Distance Between Failures

Definition: An industry standard that measures the mechanical reliability of the fleet. It measures the average rail car 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.

Performance (May 2016 and Fiscal year-to-date):

In May, met the Target; the actual being 30,410 miles - a drastic improvement compared to that in April. The overall number of failures decreased from 86 in April to 64 in May. Doors, Friction Brake, and ATC remain the most problematic systems. Hot weather caused the increase in HVAC system failures, which was offset by the improvement in the performance of Doors system (the number of failures fell from 25 in April to 9 in May).

Actions:  

Continue Door system troubleshooting training for supervisors.
