Tracking Costs of Alternatively Fueled Buses in Florida – Phase II

Tracking Costs of Alternatively Fueled Buses in Florida – Phase II(Center Identification Number: 77943) The goal of this project was to continue collecting and reporting the data on the performance and costs of alternatively fueled public transit vehicles in the state in a consistent manner in order to keep the Bus Fuels Fleet Evaluation Tool (BuFFeT) cost model current. Over the course of this project, repeated data requests were sent to all fixed-route transit agencies in Florida. Despite the challenges in data collection and low response rate, enough data was collected to represent the majority of the Florida fixed-route fleet and perform a valid analysis of costs. Data for both fixed-route and paratransit vehicles were requested. However, due to the low response rate and inconsistency of reporting for the demand response vehicles, the extent and reliability of the analysis of the paratransit fleet is limited and should be interpreted with caution. As more data are collected, the reliability of the analysis will improve. Download the final report.
