This study details the analysis of the Florida Transit Research Inspection Procurement Services (TRIPS) Program. It provides a comparative assessment of the program with respect to out-of-state practice, provides recommendations to improve life cycle vehicle data reporting procedures and details benefits of the program. The collection of this information can be used to compare TRIPS vehicle performance with vehicles purchased by transit agencies by other means, or to compare TRIPS vehicles with similar vehicle fleets in sample out-of-state locations.
