Greenlink Maintenance

Greenlink mechanics are vital for ensuring the buses and vehicles are in working order and can safely transport Greenlink passengers. Mechanics are responsible for performing repairs of vehicles and engines, maintaining all the equipment on the vehicles such as the radio and farebox, and conducting diagnostics.

Greenlink operates a mixed fleet of heavy-duty diesel engine buses, gasoline medium & light duty vehicles, and electric buses. Greenlink’s services operate Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Fleet Maintenance is the support backbone to ensure Greenlink is able to operate and provide essential transportation without issue. The Fleet Maintenance Garage is open during the entire service day and remains open after service ends to get all vehicles ready for the next day of service. The Garage operates from 4:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, and 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. No maintenance staff needed for Sunday at this time.

Our technicians operate on two shifts. The morning shift approximately runs from 4:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and the evening shift is expected from 1:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Additionally, the evening shift team members rotate weekly to cover the late-night shift from 4:30 p.m. until bus washing is complete.
