MST Opens Expanded Bus Operations Facility

Monterey-Salinas (CA) Transit (MST) recently celebrated the ­opening of its new and expanded Monterey Bay Operations and Maintenance Facility with ribbon-cutting ceremonies.

The expansion transformed the ­original facility, built in 1978 with 20,000 square feet for a 36-bus fleet, into a 33,000-square-foot facility designed for up to 88 buses serving the communities of the Monterey Peninsula. Pre-­engineered building elements reduced both cost and construction time required for completion of the project.

The building—dedicated to Thomas D. Albert, MST’s first general manager—provides new service bays, a new tire-servicing station, more parts storage, a water-efficient bus wash, electric bus charging station and a second-floor communications center that offers a birds-eye view of the bus yard.

Funding for the $22 million construction project came from the California Proposition 1B (2006) Public Transportation Modernization, Improvement, Service Enhancement Account Program, from the state Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program and from local funds.

MST General Manager/CEO Carl Sedoryk, center, joined other stakeholders at ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the expanded Monterey Bay Operations and Maintenance Facility.
