Southwest Division Electrification/Expansion
Project Map More info
The facilities will be built on a 22-acre site that is situated next door to Pace’s South
Division Garage in Markham and owned by Pace. The purpose of this project is to consolidate certain
operational functions currently operating at each garage into one location. This will improve productivity
and control costs by eliminating duplication. The original plan was to construct three separate buildings:
1) an Active Transit Management Center to accommodate Central Dispatching; 2) a new Central Stores
Warehouse and 3) Acceptance Facility for preparing new buses to put in service. The Active Transit
Management Center will include Central Dispatching, Customer Service, Safety, Operator Training, etc.
The Acceptance Facility Garage will replace the facility in South Holland and include body repair work,
mechanic training, Tech Services (farebox and radio repair), sign and shelter shops, etc. The third
function is a new Central Warehouse for parts and materials.
