Politicians and officials visited the new $24 million GO Transit bus storage and maintenance facility in Hamilton in a public relations/photo opportunity event on Oct. 31.

The press release said David Sweet, Member of Parliament for Ancaster—Dundas—Flamborough—Westdale; Ted McMeekin, Member of Provincial Parliament for Ancaster—Dundas—Flamborough—Westdale; and Mary Proc, vice-president of customer service for GO Transit, a division of Metronlinx,  visited the construction site.

The project includes indoor bus storage for up to 40 buses; indoor service bays for fuelling, bus wash, inspection, cleaning and repairs; building service support areas including equipment and storage rooms; and staff facilities and parking.

It has been designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification through the use of energy-efficient systems, such as recycling water from the bus wash, energy-efficient heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) and LED lighting systems, and a white roof, which reflects the sun and saves energy. It will also feature an on-site fuelling station that will result in less travelling for buses not in service, saving money, time and reducing gas emissions.
