Durham Region Transit's Westney Division is a bus garage located 110 Westney Road South across from the Ajax GO Station. This garage services conventional and Specialized Services vehicles running in Ajax and Pickering (only buses running the 915 run in Oshawa and Whitby as well).

The front of the building has a DRT customer service centre with maps, schedules, and promotional material available. Behind the front desk is office space for various employees including phone operators. To the right of this area is a separate room used as the drivers' room. Immediately left of that entrance is the entrance to the garage. When one enters the doorway, the bus wash is located to the left, maintenance area and office is located ahead, and indoor parking and storage is slightly to the right. Employee parking is available at the front and at the rear behind the maintenance area. The buses enter on the west side and exit on the south side of the building. The buses are parked in rows in the outdoor lot behind the building.

The garage was opened in the early 1990s for Ajax Transit moving from their previous yard further south. When Ajax and Pickering Transit merged to form the Ajax Pickering Transit Authority in 2001, many Pickering buses were transferred to Ajax with few buses stored at the Pickering Works facility. this arrangement carried over into the formation of DRT in 2006.

In mid 2007, construction started on an expansion of the facility. This involved moving the fence at the south end of the facility further back past the end of the south GO lot. This yielded a larger outdoor storage area for new buses and results in a more organized facility. Westney is undergoing an expansion again with construction started in October 2010. The expansion includes a new 3,400 square metre addition dedicated to operational and maintenance space. A portion of the $16.6 million addition will be for storage of part of a dedicated BRT fleet. The project is set to be complete in the first quarter of 2012.
