§ 73.05 – How do I determine annual vehicle days actually operated for non-scheduled services?

(a)    You should use a spreadsheet or some other mechanism to record the daily number of passengers carried by individual vehicles in your fleet for an entire year. 

(b)   Figure 73.01 shows an example of such a spreadsheet with the following assumptions:

(1)   your fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30,

(2)   you operate every day, and

(3)   your fleet has 100 vehicles. 

(c)    Once you have such a spreadsheet, you can easily determine the daily number of vehicles operated by type of service days in two steps:

(1)   For any one operating date, count the number of vehicles in the fleet that carried at least one passenger on that date.

(2)   Summarize the daily number of vehicles operated by type of service days.

(d)    You can also use such a spreadsheet to determine the number of vehicles operated for each group if your sampling plan is based on service grouping.
