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.
