Project Connect O&M

On October 30th, Project Connect provided a joint meeting of the Austin City Council and its Board of Directors two memos estimating the operations and maintenance (O&M) costs for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) modes serving the alignments commonly referred to as the “Orange” and “Blue” Lines.

This analysis examines the revenue hour cost estimates in those memos, as they are the foundation of the overall O&M cost estimate.
