Light Maintenance Facilities

Three Light Maintenance Facilities (LMFs) located along the system will provide regular maintenance and operations for high-speed trains. LMFs are where trains are inspected, cleaned, serviced and stored, providing a service point for any trains in need of emergency repair services. LMFs will also supply trains and crews to the local terminal station at the start of the day. Between 125 to 150 jobs will be located at these three facilities, including mechanical technicians, cleaners and inspectors.

In Northern California, an LMF is planned in the City of Brisbane. The Authority evaluated several potential LMF sites in Northern California and identified two options in Brisbane to further analyze in the Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIR/EIS). In 2019, the Authority Board of Directors identified the East Brisbane LMF (Alternative A) as the preferred location, considering preliminary environmental analysis and input received from the public. Both options are studied in full in the Draft EIR/EIS.
