Kerr Area Rural Transit System (KARTS) Operations and Maintenance Transit Facility
Henderson, North Carolina
The Kerr Area Rural Transit System (KARTS) is a demand-response public transportation service, providing transit services throughout a four-county area. KARTS also provides fixed-route shuttle service, as well as necessary public transportation to elderly, disabled, and non-mobile clientele. As part of an overall plan to improve services and facilities, KARTS required a new Operations and Maintenance Transit Facility.
MDG, as part of a comprehensive Design Team, worked to design a facility that responded to the functional needs and allowed KARTS to expand their fleet. The facility also was designed to provide a productive and safe work environment for KARTS employees. MDG and the Design Team reviewed and evaluated existing program documents and functional requirements, providing a Program Confirmation Report. The new transit facility includes administrative offices as well as a maintenance garage with adequate parking for fleet vehicles, employee and visitor vehicles.
- This facility will serve the needs of a multi-county transportation authority.
