Here are the Site Options Review Presentation Panels with detailed site plans for the Toronto Transit Commission’s LRV Fleet Maintenance & Storage (M&S) Facility.

A study of the plans of these six sites shortlisted here - and the decision making process involved -(scaled down appropriately to local LRV size & carparking needs)- should give people here a better idea of the size, scope and complexity in site-selection and planning of this facility. The location of this critical component of the transit system will have a direct bearing on the operational and financial sustainability of the LRT system being designed for Hamilton.

The decision to build and operate an HSR (M&S) facility on the far end of Upper James did have a significant impact on the operations and sustainability of the HSR system. I am sure the city has learned from this and hence will be extra cautious in locating the LRV M&S facilities more strategically.
