Utah Transit Authority Depot District Transit Center

Salt Lake City, Utah

UTA needed a new “state-of-the-art” Central Bus Operations and Maintenance Facility to replace their existing Central Bus Garage. The facility is planned to be built in phases based on available funding for the facility. The first phase is planned to accommodate 150 buses and the second phase a total of 250 buses. UTA also wants to evaluate alternative fuel sources for the buses as well as offer the fuel to other public agencies. The project design incorporates the renovation of a 1920s locomotive repair facility into the design of the bus maintenance facility. The facility will also utilize photo voltaic canopies to protect the buses from the snow and ice during the winter and shade them during the summer months.

Project Highlights
• Adaptive integration of historic repair facility into the new building design, including a stunning outdoor, second level meeting area.
• Ability to cover all buses under canopies.
• Phased construction as funding becomes available.
• Drive-through maintenance bays with no backing of buses.
