One way to get more working escalators
Metro’s repair and maintenance contract for its 588 escalators and 275 elevators pays its contractor to fix things when they go wrong. This creates the wrong incentive. Metro’s contract should provide for a fair annual overall price to keep the equipment running, with a stated amount deducted for each day that each piece of equipment is out of service. Could we expect fewer breakdowns with such an approach?
