Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority

Metro Division: Bus Maintenance Operations (Follow-Up Review)

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority operates a fleet of 330 buses in Erie and Niagara Counties. In our prior audit report 98-S-37, we examined the activities of the bus maintenance staff and found that the Authority had not established procedures for monitoring the productivity of the staff. We also determined that the Authority's skilled mechanics may have spent a significant portion of their work days on tasks not commensurate with their skills, and concluded that the Authority may have had more skilled mechanics than were needed for its bus maintenance work load. In our follow-up review, we found that actions have been taken by Authority officials to implement the recommendations contained in our prior report.
