Asset Condition Assessments

Federal Transit Administration Transit Asset Management rule requires that transit providers determine and track the condition of their assets. Use these interactive spreadsheets that ODOT has created to asses the condition of your assets, then report that condition in OPTIS. Report asset conditions in OPTIS quarterly for vehicles and annually for facilities and equipment.
