Quincy Bus Facility
As part of its broader Better Bus Project initiative, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) has initiated the replacement of the Quincy Bus Facility, the oldest bus facility in the MBTA system. STV is performing complete architectural and engineering design services for a new, state-of-the-art, 350,960-square-foot maintenance facility. The new maintenance facility is being designed to store and maintain up to 135 buses, while accommodating future service growth and the anticipated transition to an all-electric bus fleet.
The new Quincy Bus Facility is being constructed adjacent to the Thomas E. Burgin Parkway, across the street from Quincy Adams Station on the Red Line, and less than a mile from Quincy Center Station, where many Quincy bus routes originate. As a result, proper traffic circulation in and around the site will be a key challenge to be addressed by the design team.
