Western Bus Garage Replacement Project

Western Bus Garage Replacement

The Western Bus Garage Replacement Project aims to create a safer, modern, LEED-certified bus operations and maintenance facility in Northwest Washington, DC to help invigorate and drive the important redevelopment efforts already underway in the area.

The existing Western Bus Garage, located at 5230 Wisconsin Avenue NW and built in 1936, has reached the end of its lifespan. The facility is becoming increasingly costly to maintain and sustain operations and cannot support Metro's transition to zero-emission electric buses.

The proposed new garage will:

  • Increase operational efficiency for the bus fleet by providing accessible bus parking spaces in a completely enclosed structure
  • Accommodate zero-emission bus infrastructure, consistent with Metro's zero-emission bus plan
  • Continue to provide space for maintenance activities, bus storage, and other operational necessities to efficiently serve customers in Northwest DC

Additional information about this project will be available later this year.
