Houston MTA chooses Trapeze technology

Written by 

Mississauga, Ontario-based Trapeze Group Friday said the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (Houston Metro) has chosen the company's Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) technology for Metro's rail and bus operations.

EAM will be used to improve Metro's operations performance through increased equipment/asset availability, decreased maintenance and repair (M&R) costs, and increased bus and rail utilization, Trapeze Group said.

EAM technology includes management software for right-of-way and stationary assets. It manages the right-of-way, including inspections, defect recording and repair of rail track, signals, switches, catenary, and electric traction, and is capable of tracking an unlimited number of equipment units as well as supporting an unlimited number of workstations from a number of locations, the company said.
