Metro Bus Barn Service Lane Addition

Last Updated: 05/09/2018

New Metro Wash Bay

The new Metro Wash Bay will provide a small addition to the south side of the Madison Metro Transit Building. This new Wash Bay addition will eliminate the major contributor to vehicle circulation congestion, reduces humidity and temperature problems, and isolates pollution/exhaust fumes as identified in a report posted on Metro Bus Barn Study found here. The main facility can then be reconfigured to provide left-hand turn bus circulation, an increased number of maintenance work bays, isolated spaces for enhanced safety zones for staff, and better space and amenities to the driver dispatch and building support areas for employees. Moving the wash bay out of the work areas will eliminate the major contributor of pollution in the facility. New HVAC systems will also provide separated zones, address negative pressure issues, and provide enhanced ventilation (above code minimums, in line with LEED requirements) to create a healthier environment. This addition/remodeling will provide additional safety features and benefits. More information can be found in the Madison Metro Transit Building – Executive Summary and Recommendations report.
