Operations Center and Bus Maintenance Facility
Richland County Transit
Mansfield, Ohio

A renewal project in a depressed location, this building has sparked an overall redevelopment in the north end of Mansfield. Prior to construction of this 29,000 s.f. facility the entire RCT operations were housed in a 3-stall metal garage lacking height for bus lifts. Through extensive research, parameters were formulated to integrate 3 distinct areas for bus repair, storage and administrative/operations offices. Repair areas include lifts, maintenance pit, bus wash, bench areas, parts storage and maintenance office. The administrative areas include offices for operations and a meeting/conference room for the RCT Board.
