Case Story

Simi Valley Renovates its Transit Maintenance Facility

Simi Valley’s newly renovated transit maintenance facility is a model of sustainability in more ways than one. In 2012, the city dedicated the LEED-Gold building that incorporates recycled and regionally produced materials plus an energy-efficient design that has resulted in a 25 percent energy savings. The project also includes a modern bus washing system that filters and recycles wash water in a way that accelerates the washing process and reduces water use by 42 percent.
