Town of Jackson/START Bus Facility

Jackson, Wyoming

Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit (START Bus) ran their maintenance and operations at the Town of Jackson Public Works Facility. The growth of the START operation exceeded the capacity of this facility. Due to limited available property in the Town of Jackson, START and the Town decided to rearrange the operations at the Public Works Facility to construct a new Operations Facility for START and a shared Maintenance Facility for START and the Town.

MDG provided programming and site master planning to develop a project budget for the new START/Public Works Facility. Phase I of the new facility will provide administrative offices, the first half of the interior bus storage for the fleet of 36 fixed route buses, a nine-bay fleet maintenance facility, in-line fueling and drive-thru bus wash at the entry to the bus storage area. Future phases will include a fuel island, vehicle maintenance facility, the second half of the interior bus storage, and six units of employee housing. An intermodal transit center is being planned for on the adjacent parcel.

Project Highlights
• This project is targeting a LEED Gold certification.
• Sustainable strategies include extensive use of natural daylighting, green roof, energy-efficient building envelope and radiant floor heating.
• The facility is sited on the edge of a beautiful meadow that is home to wildlife in the area, which provides both an impressive setting and opportunities for integrating sustainable site design.
