Electrical charging and hydrogen fueling take transit into a sustainable future

Serving Olympia’s public transportation ridership, Intercity Transit is committed to supporting the community’s growing transit needs in a safe, sustainable way. With a goal to better accommodate their existing  vehicle fleet and future growth, they looked to us to provide the design for a new space—the Intercity Transit Pattison Bus Operations and Maintenance Facility. Our role? We provided architecture, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering, industrial architecture and engineering, interior design, acoustics, lighting design, and sustainable design services.

The facility includes a three-story administration and operations building, a one-story fuel, wash, and facilities building, and a remodel of the existing maintenance building. Designed to accommodate a fleet expansion of fixed-route and paratransit vehicles from 115 vehicles to 190 vehicles, portions of the site are allocated for future electrical charging and hydrogen fueling—incorporating space for new propulsion technologies that will make the fleet more efficient and decrease Intercity Transit’s environmental impact. Exterior finishes and landscaping are designed to create a welcoming space for neighbors, passengers, employees, and the community.

Having this new, modern facility means Intercity Transit can grow as the community grows.
