Depots (Major Projects Only)
Starting January 2015, several bus depots in all 5 boroughs had begun or continued in-house rehabs to modernize the facilities, increase productivity, and lower costs.
East New York - Currently in the planning stage is a brand new state-of-the-art facility for the merged bus operations of NYCTA and MTABC. The new building will be located and constructed at the East New York Bus Depot site, which currently serves as MTA's Surface Transit Operations Headquarters. This facility will feature brand new bus dispatch capabilities which will be merged with MTABC, as all buses across the fleet will have their radios replaced for one common system. This will begin the much awaited official merger of New York City Transit's TA and OA divisions with that of MTA Bus Company. All buses will also have their fare-boxes replaced for units that will be common to both Transit and Bus Co.
Jamaica - Construction of the new Jamaica Depot is now in the first phase of planning. These discussions include the finalization of the location, the acquisition of property, site preparation, and the overall design of the new depot. The official project completion date is not known as the planning has just begun. It is now being said that the existing depot will be demolished, and a new expanded building will be replaced in the current location along with newly purchased property adjacent to lot to facilitate expansion
Mother Clara Hale - The new Mother Clara Hale depot re-opened as a Manhattan Division facility. It is a state of the art depot which currently operates the M1, M7, M15SBS, and M35 bus routes.
