Alpine Express maintenance staff keep a record of the date inspections have been performed on vehicles as well as a list of ongoing repairs and maintenance issues. If reoccurring issues involving vehicle safety are observed and documented, staff can review vehicle records to determine the causal factors of the
problem and adapt the maintenance program to address such issues across the fleet.

All transit vehicles have a complete file history that includes documentation of repairs, inspections, and other related vehicle maintenance activities, including:

  • DVIRs noting defects;
  • Records of annual DOT inspection forms; and
  • Work-order records for repairs resulting from PM inspections.

Alpine Express creates and keeps a current maintenance file folder and maintenance history binder for each fleet vehicle, held for the entire life of the vehicle. Documents from the file folders are used to
update the binders on an annual basis.

Vehicle records must be retained for at least three years beyond vehicle disposal.
