Bus Facility Modernization

  • Timeline: Ongoing
  • Status: 15% Design for work on a new Quincy bus maintenance facility

As part of the Better Bus Project, the Bus Facility Modernization program will improve the garages where we store and maintain our fleet of buses. Starting with the Quincy Bus Facility, we will redesign our garages to:

  • Create modern, efficient work environments for our employees
  • Expand system capacity for more buses and extra service
  • Be able to accommodate a zero-emissions fleet of battery-electric buses

Building a Better T

As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.

Quincy Bus Facility

The Quincy bus facility is the oldest in the system, and it lacks the technology and space to accommodate new buses. Because of this, only older buses can run on Quincy routes, resulting in limited service frequency and a higher chance of reliability issues.

We're designing a new facility that can house a larger, more modern fleet. This will improve operational efficiency and allow for more potential service in the future. The new facility will be located across the street from Quincy Adams Station on the Red Line, which is within a mile of Quincy Center Station, where many of the Quincy routes start.

Public Engagement

We're providing updates on the design of the new Quincy bus facility and welcome public feedback throughout the design process.

We presented our initial design concept during a community meeting in January 2020.

Based on feedback from that meeting, we shared updated information on our plans during a virtual public meeting in June 2020.
