10:51 am
of transcript with the sfmta. and the item we have before you this morning constitutes we believe the single biggest thing we can do to improve the transportation network here in the city both in the short term and in the long-term to meet our strategic goals we've tried to do with the procurement is to take a long view in terms of what we've addressing here not only the immediate problems but of krourd and congestion on the subway but what we need to do to meet the demands of the future and learn the lessons from the procurement of 15 years ago that number one we again buy enough cars and see what is going on now and number 2 that we wanted to look at the complete costs of
10:52 am
the car including the life cycle i number 3 is to partner with someone who is a proven leader in delivering cars on time and high quality and fourth really to leave the design of the cars to the experts to the manufactures so after a process of some 18 months we're pleased to say that the item that we're putting in front of you today will ask our approval to procure up to two hundred and 60 cars for the next generation in terms of technology that the price both the unit and overall contract price is well below our engineers estimate and also, we have a very aggressive skilled
10:53 am
and a partner with a proven track record the car will be here in 24 months from today and finally, there's this is awhile there is no real car manufacturers in the united states those are the designed i mustered locally entirely in sacramento and it is in the spirit of this aggressive schedule to begin to solve our problems that i want to acknowledge the support and coordination and the quick turn around the office of the budget analyst particularly chris and southern campbell that worked with us on a complicated deal to sty on schedule. again, the important thing we've said this car hit all our objectives that arrangement hits our objective the singled biggest thing the next one
10:54 am
please to improve it you have up to two hundred and 60 cars we ask our approval this year that is a snapshot this is to ask for alternative approaches what you will see in here is some of the models that the manufacturers offered one of the 3 different versions particularly changing the front of the design we have unique operating characters that limit us but within that we have gone forward i think in firemen's t terms of the technical standpoint it's the next generation of the cars from where we are today. i'll calling your attention to one of the items the wealthy requirement i'm sure you're aware of from our own
10:55 am
experiences and the experience of your constituents that one, the things is issues with noise and vibration and pounding on the streets because of the wealthy of the car because of the technology improvement it car is 78 thousand cars less in wealthy and have less wear and tier on the system and world-class features and after generation accessibility that will help to improve the service i our maintenance costs. one item that you've heard as i've addressed to you on a number of occasions regarding the current performs of the stem you know that the doors in the current l l v fleet they represent nearly 50 percent of
10:56 am
the mechanical delay the door was to a great degree proscribed is weeks ago over 2 hundred pound some 8 hundred moving parts complicated use of equipment to maintain all the time so what we've done throughout process reach out to the industry we have 19 moving parts that's subsequentially less and all electric this is rigging a lot of stops high and low we'll perform much better and overall right now gru just to give you a frame of reference on reliability our l l.b. fleet goes some 5 thousand miles improving 12 thousand miles
10:57 am
between breakdowns and mechanical failure or what we refer to as mean distance. in our requirements we specified the vehicle new vehicles need to go 25 thousand before failing. the vehicles we have will go 58 thousand before failing forego mechanical reasons we're going to have quality? vehicle. one of the things we asked for alternative approaches one the things the board has expressed an interest ♪ ways to improve the services excuse me. is the interior design of the cars. what you see is a version that is manufacturers has offered that is essentially a clean sheet of paper in the redesign of the interior of the car our
10:58 am
proposal over the next two to three months to socialize this action that we a gather input from a wide of audience as we can about the design of the interior or will have a choice between this design and a more traditional design. vision zero the importance of citywide everyone looking to reduce the pedestrian accidents and oneself obviously in our system we run on the street this new operate cab from the safety pro peck will be a great buena benefit 3 will provide operators with dig analysts to guide them to the trouble spots there's a quick snapshot of the potential color schemes and the what the
10:59 am
car looks like. so from a car standpoint we think we're getting a top quality car and made 13 hundred light rail in north america like san diego and sacramento and salt lake city and st. louis and houston we took a long-term strategic approach we're trying to deal with all 3 the need for expansion, the need to meet the central subway and the need to replace our existing fleet a long term my time generational start date allowing us to bring 24 cars excuse me for the central subway followed by the 40 cars to meet the expansion
11:00 am
then the replacement of the hundred and vicars with the greater fleet that will begin in 20021 that's when the cars become retirement age under the guidelines this is a long term structure approach i'll say in the year approximately 20027 a need for additional 45 vehicles that's unfunded the budget analyst has made recommendation we support but again, this is a picture for long term and one of the advantages of this deal is the price came in far below what we estimated we have worked closely with the manufacturers and the price is
