Helping Napa Valley Transportation Authority achieve a greener, sustainable future

To meet the community’s transit needs and, achieve 100% zero emission bus service by 2040, Napa Valley Transportation Authority (NVTA) is expanding their transit fleet. NVTA’s current operations and maintenance facility is not equipped to handle the future demands.

We’re designing a new facility that will consist of an operations building for more than 100 operators, a 6-bay maintenance building, and a vehicle wash to serve a future fleet of over 80 transit vehicles. The new facility will also serve as a regional meeting facility for NVTA, providing meeting and collaboration space for the communities they serve. This project will also seek net zero energy through extensive use of photovoltaics and electric bus charging. We’re working carefully to ensure maximum solar potential by maximizing rooftop solar and planning the site to allow for solar canopies to be phased and constructed separately. Our team is also collaborating on strategies for maximizing on-site battery storage and are designing the electrical service and infrastructure on the site. As part of this project, our team also prepared independent opinions of probable construction costs.

Upon completion, this project will secure a more environmentally friendly future for Napa Valley.
