The results are presented of a study to determine the facilities required to support the operation and maintenance of an expanded transit system (eleven new rapid transit routes comprising approximately forty miles of new subway lines). The study deals principally with the yards and shops facilities thought the system and is primarily concerned with can storage and yard operations, car maintenance functions, and major maintenance-of-way functions. The program consisted of 3 major tasks leading to the development of recommendations of modifications to the existing facilities to accommodate the requirements of the expanded system. The tasks were as follows: inventory of existing system; determination of car requirements and car mileage; investigation and evaluation of operating maintenance practices and procedures.
