OCTA facility plan saves agencies money

 



Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) and San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD will utilize the pre-existing design plans of an Orange County (Calif.) Transportation Authority (OCTA) bus base in an innovative approach to building transit facilities that is expected to save them each hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This first-time approach to transit facility construction stemmed from the 2007 California Transit Association conference hosted by OCTA in Anaheim where MST and RTD toured the Santa Ana base. Prior to the conference, MST was preparing to build a new facility by touring other bus bases in the state.

Officials for both agencies say the action will save them up to $800,000 each.
