Transit organizations are faced with increasing focus on operating expenses. They are challenged with diminishing revenues as employers move increasingly towards a remote working model reducing the demand for transit, while municipalities require their transit systems to service an ever-growing area to meet equity demands. Transit providers have a need to become lean, focusing on initiatives to contain operating expenses in order to meet the gaps created by reduced ridership revenue. 

This presentation will focus on a use case with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), leveraging unique techniques to identify and implement initiatives that result in near term operating expense savings through optimization of maintenance activities. Learn about AM2O - Asset Maintenance Optimization Model, the process used to identify opportunities for maintenance efficiencies, and some specific successful use cases within WMATA to identify and implement efficiencies through the use of the AM2O methodology.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 29, 2022, 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET.
WHERE: Online webinar.
FEE: Registration (members, non-members, life members, students): $5.
One (1.0) Professional Development Hour (PDH) will be awarded for attendance.
