Tests on three Southern California Rapid Transit District Advanced Design Buses indicate improved brake service life results from use of lining materials having better temperature resistance.A specific transit agency may calculate brake-related operations /maintenance costs by substituting operations /maintenance cost data unique to that agency for the data presented in Table 16. For example, the costs outlined in Table 10 assume an average lining life of 22, 000 miles for the baseline (GMC RTS ... Referring to Table 10, ac There would be no change in estimated Retrofit Capital Costs ($C).
