|Non-revenue support-service and maintenance vehicles|
|Rolling Stock||Percentage of vehicles met or exceeded Useful Life Benchmark||50 percent|
|Revenue vehicles by mode|
|Infrastructure (not applicable in state plan)||Percentage of track segments w/performance restrictions by class||Not Applicable|
|Only rail fixed-guideway, track, signals and systems|
|Facilities||Percentage of assets with condition rating below 3.0 on FTA TERM Scale||25 percent with condition rating below 3.0 on FTA TERM* Scale|
City Utilities is partnering with the State of Missouri on their Transit Asset Management Plan. State, and thereby CU, targets for the Plan were required by January 1, 2017. MoDOT collected and evaluated existing buses and facilities to be included in the Plan and used this information to set targets, which will be evaluated on an annual basis as inventory changes. These targets have been set by the State. City Utilities agrees to manage their assets in support of the state targets. OTO recommends concurrence with these statewide targets.
The public comment period will end on February 15, 2017. The OTO Board of Directors will review and consider approving the Targets at their February 16, 2017 Board Meeting, held at 12:00 noon at 2208 W. Chesterfield Boulevard, Suite 101, Springfield, Missouri. After reviewing recommendations and entertaining public comment, the OTO Board of Directors will decide whether to formally adopt the Targets.
