In recent decades, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is well-known and has been widely accepted by AEC industry since it could make less mistakes, conflicts, and bring more profits as well as improve the level of communication and coordination. However, in the Operation and Maintenance phase, most of the owners including the transit agencies, still lack the knowledge about what BIM deliverables and processes to demand and how to facilitate and encourage other stakeholders to apply BIM technology. Therefore, this research aims to support Public transit authority in adopting and utilizing BIM processes by means of assessing their current BIM execution status. Through conducting a survey and interview in transit agencies owners, this research focuses on what kind of information requirements the facilities management for BIM deliverables is demanding and how these deliverables are being jointly used for facilities management after completing the handover process of the public transit industry.
