The Vehicle Maintenance Division maintains and repairs over 300 City-owned vehicles and pieces of equipment. The Division works to reduce the service impacts of unscheduled repairs and breakdowns through a preventive maintenance program, scheduling and documenting all repairs in a computerized work order system. The Division has increasingly incorporated recycled products into its maintenance program, including re-treaded tires and recycled oil and other engine fluids.
The Division researches and develops specifications for new vehicle purchases, which have increasingly focused on “right-sizing” the vehicle for the job and has incorporated more fuel efficient vehicles into the City’s fleet. The Division also plays a key role in snow operations, inspects over 250 Cambridge taxis each year, prepares over 150 City vehicles to receive State Inspection stickers each year, and conducts in-house Commercial Driver’s License training.
