The City of Calgary celebrated a groundbreaking event Tuesday for the Stoney Compressed Natural Gas Bus Storage and Transit Facility.
The new 44,000 square metre facility will provide storage and maintenance space for Calgary Transit’s new fleet of natural gas buses as well as diesel buses that are currently stored outside the city’s other bus garages.
The complex will be capable of housing a minimum of 424 buses, 36 maintenance bays, two steam cleaning bays, on-site compressed natural gas fuelling infrastructure, and associated staff facilities.
It will be located in the Stoney industrial area in north-central Calgary.
It will cost about $174 million.
