Rolluda Architects partnered with Stantec and McKinstry on this Interim Base south of Tukwila that spans 544,000 sf with new maintenance spaces and vehicle charging equipment. It provides parking and charging stations for 120 new zero-emission buses and features several sustainability efforts to reduce energy consumption and reuse materials.

“The future of transit is electric, and today we’re building Metro’s infrastructure to deliver the bus network of tomorrow,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “A new 100% electric base for 120 new zero-emission buses will help us combat carbon emissions, push back against our changing climate, and support this new fleet for decades to come.”

The buses that will operate out of this base will be are focused on serving the communities of South King County that have been disproportionately impacted by pollution generated by fossil fuels. The project is to be completed and open in 2026.
