Gunnison Valley RTA Public Transportation
Section 2: Maintenance Capacity, Fleet Condition, and Replacement Plan – Vehicle Maintenance
Every Alpine Express vehicle operator (driver) is responsible for performing a daily pre-and post-trip inspection of their assigned vehicle. Operators must fill out a daily vehicle inspection record (DVIR) and present any issues discovered during the inspection to the maintenance staff for correction. Issues encountered on route or during the required post trip inspection are reported on the DVIR and submitted to maintenance staff.
The maintenance staff is responsible for addressing any issues that are reported by vehicle operators on the DVIR, pulling vehicles from service, and updating the vehicle repair list accordingly. Vehicles on the repair list are logged by ID number and evaluated for scheduling of repairs and inspections.
A preventive maintenance program is followed requiring each vehicle in the fleet to be rotated through the shop for varying levels of inspection and service at regular intervals. All inspections and service intervals have been designed to meet or exceed manufacturers’ requirements.
