Vehicle Maintenance Training Facility

InspirationField will renovate an existing metal building that will be utilized as a Vehicle Maintenance Training Facility (VMTF), which will allow the agency to perform maintenance on its growing fleet of 30 vehicles.

InspirationField plans to make its services available to the public and to provide fleet maintenance for local school districts, city transit, nursing facilities, other transit agencies, etc. This project would give the agency an opportunity to collaborate with various local companies and agencies and provide them with high quality mechanic work.

InspirationField would market and promote vehicle mechanic services in a 60 mile radius from Pueblo to Lamar (120 continuous miles) and beyond. The agency's lead mechanic would obtain certification in various bus/van lift services and these services would be offered to other companies and transit agencies in surrounding cities.

InspirationField will also furnish the facility with the necessary equipment to perform the aforementioned services. A portion of the facility will also be used as a job training center for approximately eight (8) at-risk adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These individuals will work closely with a certified mechanic who will teach them valuable mechanical skills.
