Construction set to begin on new transit fleet maintenance facility in Regina

 

It was a step forward for public transit in Regina, as the city, along with the provincial and federal government, announced the start of construction on a new transit fleet maintenance facility in an official sod-turning event this morning.

The $30.1 million project will be attached to the existing transit operation centre at 333 Winnipeg Street and will replace the current facility on Albert Street, which is nearly 70-years-old and was built to repair street cars.

“This is big news for Regina residents. This is going to save a lot of money in terms of how we deliver transit service, being more efficient in repairing a transit fleet,” Regina Mayor Michael Fougere said.

The new 60,000-square-foot building will help improve operational efficiency by shifting maintenance between the two locations and is expected to save more than 3,000 hours per year now spent transporting buses back and forth.

“It’s based on industry-best practices for maintenance facilities. Everything from the number of bays, which is about double the amount of service bays, to efficient fluid distribution systems, to in-ground hoists,” Jill Hargrove, City of Regina’s director of facilities management, said.

“The entire facility is designed to help maintenance staff to work more efficiently.”

The new space will include both 40 and 60-foot full-service and repair bays, complete with hoists.
