Bus Depots

BUS DEPOTS, enterprises providing for parking, technical maintenance, and repair of buses. They consist of a roofed depot building, vehicle technical maintenance facilities, and an administrative office. The first bus depot appeared in Leningrad in 1926 (in the building of the former Stables Department; Konyushennaya Square, 2; liquidated in 1940). A bus depot at 18 Dnepropetrovskaya Street (from 1945 bus depot No 1; with the holding capacity of up to 300 vehicles) was opened in 1938. In 1990 bus depots were subordinated to Passazhiravtotrans State Enterprise. In 2002, the bus rolling stock in St. Petersburg was maintained by seven bus depots: No.2 (8 Avtobusnaya Street), No.3 (22 Khrustalnaya Street), No.4 of the LPAT No.2 (17 Nalichny Lane), No.5 (108 Stachek Avenue), No.6 (14 Stasovoy Street), No.7 (86 Kubinskaya Street). Bus depots also operate in Kolpino (22 Finlyandskaya Street) and in Petrodvorets (1 Troitskaya Gora). There is a bus station in Pushkin (41 Zheleznodorozhnaya Street). The cumulative project holding capacity of the bus depots and their subsidiaries is circa 4100 vehicles. By 2002 over a half of the bus depots showed over 50% deterioration of equipment and facilities. from the early 1990s there were fewer new vehicles purchased, leading to increased load per rolling stock unit, as well as to more wear and tear.
