A summary is given of the findings of a research effort sponsored by UMTA to identify the space guidelines used in the transit industry to plan bus maintenance facilities. Data from 30 maintenance facilities built within the last 15 years were analyzed by examining the statistical relationships between the space allocations within the facilities and variables such as annual vehicle miles operated, fleet size, and employees on site. Although the relationships derived from this research reflect as-built and not necessarily desired conditions, they can be used as guidelines for the initial feasibility phases of facility planning.
