Vast numbers of public transit agencies have increased demands for purchasing and maintenance. Transit agencies organisational growth has increased significantly based on vehicle maintenance costs that include vehicle parts, equipment, and services. Cooperative purchasing programs are methodologies used to share or bundle purchasing volumes, information, and resources. Cooperative purchasing programs can save public transit agencies time and money because of the economies of scale from increased purchased quantities. This paper identifies current preferences needed when considering utilising cooperative purchasing programs through customised questionnaires.
