Westney Division is one of two operating divisions for Durham Region Transit. It operates most routes in Ajax, Pickering, Whitby, and northern Durham.

The garage is located at 110 Westney Road South, adjacent to Ajax GO Station.

History

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 Ajax Pickering Transit Authority in 2001, many Pickering buses were transferred to Ajax's garage, with a few buses remaining at the Pickering Works facility. This arrangement carried over into the formation of DRT in 2006, when ownership of the facility was transferred to Durham Region.

Construction started on an expansion of the facility mid-2007. This involved moving the fence at the south end of the facility further back past the end of the south GO lot. This created a larger outdoor storage area for new buses and results in a more organized facility. An additional 3,400 square metre addition was built between October 2010 and early 2012.

Following the closure of Wentworth Division and contracted services in Whitby and northern Durham, Westney gained operation of most routes in Whitby and northern Durham in December 2023.

Layout

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.
