Project Description

The renovation and construction work underway at Intercity Transit’s Pattison Street Maintenance, Operations and Administrative facility represents years of planning, preparation, and hard work. The original facility, which opened in 1985, was built to service 80 vehicles. This three-year project will allow us to better accommodate our existing fleet of over 400 vehicles, provide additional services supported by voters in November 2018 and allow us to grow in the future as our community grows. The facilities will incorporate space for new technologies that will make our fleet more efficient and decrease our environmental impact. Exterior finishes and landscaping has been designed to create a welcoming space for our neighbors, our passengers, our employees and our community as a whole.

The Administration and Operations building at the intersection of Pattison Street and Martin Way is designed to welcome the public and be accessible from the street as well as from a parking garage. A second building along Martin Way will support essential fleet maintenance work including fueling and vehicle washing as well as space for facilities maintenance. Our Walk N Roll youth education program will have public access along Martin Way.

In addition to the new traffic signal and pedestrian crosswalk already installed at Martin Way and Pattison Street, site improvements will include a new bus stop, sidewalks and a bike lane to increase safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists travelling along Martin Way.

Current construction of the Administration and Operations, fuel, wash, facilities, and Walk N Roll youth education buildings, will take two years to complete. Renovation of the existing Maintenance building and remaining site work are expected to take an additional 12 to 18 months. The entire project is scheduled for completion in late 2023 or early 2024.
