Mark Ellis

Central Region Manager, Vehicle O&M Facility Design

“We strive to be known as the team that can provide the most functional, sustainable and innovative facilities possible.”

Mark has spent his entire career designing operations and maintenance facilities, including the first two LEED Platinum facilities in the U.S. — South Bend Transportation Facility in Indiana and the GoRaleigh Transit Operations Center. He is a 2014 graduate of the American Public Transportation Association’s Leadership APTA program. Mark’s passion for such highly specialized facility design stems from the revelations his work makes possible for others. “Everyone wants to work in a great space with the right tools and do a great job,” Mark said. “If you engage people and discuss how upgrading their work environments will improve how they do their jobs, people really start to listen.”

Mark has contributed to more than 200 projects, including 100 plus transit facilities and 70 plus municipal facilities. An active member of APTA and the American Public Works Association, he has presented multiple times for both organizations. His articles have been published in Passenger Transport, Metro, Bus Ride and APWA Profile.
