Change is in the air

Durham Region Transit have made some name changes to the bus garages. It has been decided that Division will now be the the preferred word over Facility.

Present Name New Name
DRT West Facility Westney Division
DRT East Facility Raleigh Division
Pickering Works Satellite Facility Pickering Works Satellite Division
Whitby Works Satellite Facility Whitby Works Satellite Division

In the past DRT used "geographic references" such as Durham East and Durham West to describe particular regions within Durham. This has been changed to municipal names.

Present Name New Name
DRT West Ajax  Pickering
DRT East Oshawa  Clarington
DRT Centre Whitby
DRT North Brock, Scugog, Uxbridge
