MST Starts Largest Building Project in Its History

Monterey-Salinas (CA) ­Transit (MST) recently broke ground for a 31,000-square-foot operations and maintenance facility that, according to General Manager/Chief Executive Officer Carl Sedoryk, is “the largest construction project that MST has undertaken as an agency.”

The $20 million Monterey Bay project, a reconstruction and expansion of an existing facility, will add four more maintenance bays, a new tire servicing station, larger parts storage, steam engine wash, a water-efficient bus wash and a dual-sided fuel island. An improved second-floor communications center will give dispatch employees a bird’s-eye view of the entire bus yard to monitor operations and safety.

Enhanced amenities for staff will include a larger, more comfortable driver lounge, a fitness room, three training rooms for drivers and offices for operations management.

Additional bus parking for up to 88 buses, as well as support vehicles, will allow MST to provide bus service to the Monterey Peninsula without transporting empty buses from Salinas, thereby reducing fuel consumption and operating costs.

Sedoryk added, “A great team of planners and construction managers is working diligently to keep MST service running consistently and reliably throughout project construction.”

Project funding comes from the California Proposition 1B (2006) Public Transportation Modernization, Improvement, Service Enhancement Account and Transit and Intercity Rail Capital programs and local funds.
