Current through Register Vol. 55, No. 48, December 18, 2023
(a) Based on its expertise and experience in the field of public transit service and knowledge of the condition of the private bus fleet in New Jersey, NJ TRANSIT may determine, at its discretion, to initiate a program providing for the rehabilitation or refurbishment of all or a portion of the bus fleets operated in regular route bus service by carriers in order to sustain the life of certain buses until they can be replaced. Such program will be subject to the availability of funding and may be conducted as an expansion of the PCCIP or as a replacement for the allocation of all or a portion of PCCIP funds to participating carriers during a given year.
(b) NJ TRANSIT shall ensure that the PCCIP addresses the legitimate needs of aging buses. The project shall be designed to ensure that funds are invested wisely and in a way that maximizes the use of existing resources to maintain the buses for the benefit of the riding public until they can be replaced. The rehabilitation program may be expected to include power plant rebuilding, replacement of HVAC systems, seat cushion and upholstery replacement, structural repairs, and repainting. Work and funding priority among carriers shall be made on an equitable basis, taking into account each carrier's percentage of eligible equipment, the age and condition of the equipment, the responsiveness of the carrier in identifying the required repairs for its fleet, the demonstrated ability and commitment of the carrier to maintain the equipment.
