D.C. Streetcar O&M Facility

Rulebook for Vehicle Operations and Maintenance Facility Design

The first rule of vehicle O&M facility design is that there's more than one first rule. 

We wrote "the rulebook" as a guide for estimating site needs, construction costs and more. Inside, you will find rules for estimating bay sizes based on vehicle types. We also outline building and fire code rules relevant to specific aspects of vehicle O&M facilities. Our rulebook can even help you determine space needs for your buildings and parking. 

Prepared by our vehicle O&M facility experts, this presentation also offers rules in the form of practical advice. Rules like "make the workplace a pleasant place to work" suggest facility features  for happier humans.
