Corporate Buying Power

First Transit can reduce maintenance costs through using our corporate buying power. As a maintenance contractor at a majority of our locations, First Transit has a relationship with parts vendors providing us with buying power – an ability to bring quality parts at a lower cost. We established Corporate Purchase Agreements (CPAs) with more than 100 vendors that represent 120,000 unique parts. This relationship with CPA’s ensures that we get quality parts, best service, and competitive pricing.

Technical Assistance Center

First Transit knows that a fleet is the most valuable asset, which is why we invest in our technicians to ensure they have the best education, training and tools available. We understand that sometimes even the most experienced technicians need help with a repair or advice on a reoccurring issue. Identifying this need has resulted in the creation of the Technical Assistance Center (TAC), a resource for technicians to share best practices and receive expert advice.

Preventative Maintenance Plan

The backbone of First Transit’s maintenance operation is our strong Preventative Maintenance (PM) Program. Proper PM will protect investments in the fleet, keeping the available fleet operational, and providing a prominent level of safe, reliable transportation to our passengers. Every First Transit vehicle undergoes thorough PM inspections to be in top condition. Routine inspections and necessary repairs follow all OEM specifications.
