The Metropolitan Transit System is trying to build a new bus yard and it has nothing to do with attempts to build a downtown convadium.
MTS has five large facilities where it stores and maintains buses around the county. Within the next 10 years, the agency will need a sixth facility.
This is all unrelated to whether the agency also needs to relocate its downtown bus yard in order to accommodate a new convention center-stadium project, an MTS spokesman said.
This is worth clarifying because two separate documents referred generally to the agency’s need for a new bus yard at the same estimated cost − $100 million – as the one anticipated for a convadium-forced relocation of their downtown facility.
