Public Works Department, Division of Transportation, received grant award to upgrade transit system, Bus, and Bus Facilities
On April 5, 2018, FTA announced approximately $264 million in project selections to improve the safety and reliability of America’s bus systems and enhance mobility for transit riders across the country. A total of 139 projects in 52 states and territories will receive funding from FTA’s Buses and Bus Facilities Infrastructure Investment Program.
The new St. Croix VITRAN bus maintenance and operations facility project is underway. The project has been assigned to a DPW project engineer and Steve Hutchins Architects, Inc has been re-engaged to update the construction plans that were prepared several years ago.
A new, modern facility is currently being designed with Lanio & Associates Architects, Inc to replace the current single one‐room wooden structure in Estate La Reine in order to enhance the overall efficiency of the St. Croix service. The new Facility will be able to accommodate multiple buses for service on a number of routes and serve as a central transfer hub within the population center where riders will be able to access public transportation to other areas of the territory, including travel within and between islands.
