The City of Tucson and Sun Tran are expanding the bus route system over the next five years as part of the 20-year Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) plan. In order to add more buses to the fleet, Sun Tran will need an additional bus storage and maintenance facility since the current facility is at capacity.
The new Northwest Bus Storage and Maintenance facility is located near Interstate 10 and Prince Road and will accommodate up to 150 new buses in Phase II. Estimated completion of this project phase is November 2009. Phase III will expand the facilitiy to accomodate up to 250 buses. Federal Stimulus funds were just authorized for this project, which will go out to bid in early 2010.
