The Bus Maintenance & Operations Facility was designed to optimize Los Angeles County Metro’s bus transit service throughout the Central Los Angeles region.
The new sustainable facility accommodates a fleet of 200 CNG (compressed natural gas) buses. The project entailed construction of a cast-in-place concrete parking structure housing the Metro buses with an attached two-level, 21,000-square-foot transportation building on the structure’s northwest corner. The project also required tying into an existing two-level maintenance building.
Designed to meet LEED Gold certification standards from the United States Green Building Council, sustainable construction methods were used throughout construction such as maintaining proper indoor air quality; utilizing local labor and materials and recycling construction waste.
