METRO Selects Trapeze EAM Solution For Bus And Light Rail Operations

Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County to Benefit from Trapeze Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Software

HOUSTON, TEXAS--(Marketwire - July 13, 2012) - Trapeze Group today announced that the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) has selected Trapeze to provide Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) technology for METRO's bus and rail operations.

After an extensive procurement process, METRO has chosen Trapeze's comprehensive and integrated enterprise asset and maintenance management software solution. It is going to be instrumental in improving the agency's operations performance through increased equipment/asset availability, decreased maintenance and repair (M&R) costs and increased bus and rail utilization.

Maintaining America's buses and bus facilities in a good physical condition so that they can successfully accomplish their performance objectives is a key strategic goal of the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The FTA has funded a State of Good Repair initiative, which will help lead the nation's transit infrastructure into the 21st century. METRO can use the technology included in the Trapeze EAM solution to meet or exceed the goals and requirements of this initiative.

The solution includes management software for right-of-way and stationary assets. It manages the right-of-way, including inspections, defect recording and repair of rail track, signals, switches, catenary, and electric traction, and is capable of tracking an unlimited number of equipment units as well as supporting an unlimited number of workstations from a number of locations.

METRO is a large regional public transportation agency based in Houston, Texas. It operates bus, light rail, future commuter rail, and paratransit services in the city as well as most of Harris County. METRO also operates bus service to two cities in Fort Bend County.
