Halifax Transit Burnside Transit Centre
|Location||Burnside Industrial Park|
|Opened||March 1, 1981|
Halifax Transit's Burnside Transit Centre is the primary garage and administrative building for the transit system. Located at the end of Ilsley Avenue and bordering on the Highway 111, the garage is home to a portion of Halifax Transit's fleet of MCI and NovaBus Classics, Nova LFS Artics and New Flyer D40LFs. Buses are stored in lanes both along the highway side and the rear side of the building, and are backed in along one of the sides. Buses are also stored in lanes inside the garage. Wash racks and fuel stations are located in the garage, as well as a series of maintenance bays along the side end. Buses enter the garage either from Ilsley Avenue, or a dedicated bus-only ramp from Burnside Drive.
The administrative building is home to the administrative offices, including finance and human resources, drivers lounge and locker rooms, and the bus control and dispatching centre. A lost and found department is located in the building as well, which is open to the public.
The facility was called Ilsley Transit Centre until 2010 to differentiate it from the Thornhill Garage, which was also located in Burnside Industrial Park.
