Vehicle Inventory

Vehicle Inventory Is Open and Ready for Submissions for FY2016

It’s that time of year again when districts are required to submit final transportation data. This includes submitting the Vehicle Inventory data and generating the TRAN40-2 report as well as re-creating the TRAN55-1 report after both Vehicle Inventory and Transportation Routes data have been finalized. Generating the reports is the responsibility of the district and if they are not re-run to reflect the most recent data, it will cause unexpected results on the APOR55-1 and unexpected funding changes. Be sure to include all applicable vehicle miles through June 30. If they are not included, a negative impact to Transportation Support Level may be seen.

Vehicle Inventory data, like the Transportation Routes data, is entered via Common Logon.

Note:  Transportation Routes is open as well.  Both sets of data can be updated now through the deadline below.

DEADLINE:

The deadline for reporting of final data and generation of new reports is July 15, 2016.
