Roaring Fork taps Trapeze asset management system

Posted on September 30, 2013

Aspen, Colo.-based Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA) selected Trapeze to provide a statewide enterprise asset management (EAM) system to help track the condition of their fixed-route and paratransit vehicle fleet, facilities and equipment.

Exceeding the FTA's requirements, RFTA can choose to use the State of Good Repair (SGR) and Capital Planning modules to track all assets, their condition and their capital replacement schedules, which may result in SGR data management efficiencies and easier reporting to federal regulatory agencies. The EAM system integrates into RFTA's existing Trapeze back office system.

In operation since 1983, Roaring Fork Transportation Authority operates a fleet of over 82 vehicles and transports 4.5 million passengers annually.

EAM is a commercial off-the-shelf product which optimizes the agency's work flows, funding allocations, and resource utilization resulting in enhanced organizational transparency that facilitates accurate and agile capital planning. Providing full lifecycle asset management, the system assists with reducing asset related operating & capital costs. RFTA is using the SGR grant to fund a portion of the new transit asset management (TAM) system.
