MST Begins Long Overdue Renovation of Salinas Transit Center

After close to 30 years in operation, Monterey-Salinas Transit will begin renovations at their Salinas Transit Center in downtown Salinas on March 28, 2019. The renovations will include installing a new Portland Loo restroom which is more user-friendly, wheelchair accessible, better sanitation, and graffiti-resistant. With few restroom options in the downtown Salinas area, this new Portland Loo is a welcome upgrade.

Construction is estimated to last for 6 months and includes an addition to the customer service window for a larger staff and coach operator break room and restrooms. New landscaping will lower the water usage at the Transit Center.

No traffic detours are planned for Salinas Street, where construction will be limited to inside the Transit Center. Construction hours are also limited to Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. to minimize loud demolition or construction noise.

The improvement project is expected to take six months to complete.

Weekly updates will be available on the www.mst.org website or by calling 1-888-MST-BUS1 (1-888-678-2871) toll free.
