Maintenance at passenger transit stations is a question of safety, the top priority for all businesses in the transportation industry. Cost and labor-intensive, infrastructure maintenance involves significant resources that often could be better utilized.
For property managers and public transportation operators (PTOs) interested in adopting a data-driven approach to issues concerning infrastructure upkeep, common challenges include:
- Finding a data capture system with a high degree of accuracy
- Deploying a system able to cover highly complex spaces
- Operating a system used by stakeholders with different qualifications
The maintenance demands of different assets within a public transportation business vary widely— from cleaning restrooms or ticketing areas to platform maintenance. But PTOs can significantly reduce uncertainty about when and where use-based upkeep should be performed with a robust data capture solution.
Such a solution provides PTOs and infrastructure management companies with accurate, historical and real-time data about actual use, information they can use to:
- Optimize allocation of resources associated with maintenance
- Reduce costs by shifting to need-based upkeep, when possible
- Support other maintenance security protocols
- Carry out sanitation maintenance tasks based on actual use
Automating different processes within an infrastructure maintenance protocol can help limit problems sometimes associated with planning and execution errors. A robust, scalable data capture system provides PTOs with:
- Cross-check data that can be used to improve safety profiles and limit liability
- Anonymized records that can be used to defend maintenance processes
- Alerting capabilities that property managers can use to prevent dangerous situations
