Metro participated in Antelope Valley Transit Authority‘s dedication ceremony of the Phase II Facilities Project today. The construction expanded their original maintenance and operations facility in Lancaster. Metro provided $5.555 million in funding for the original facility through the 2001 Call for Projects and contributed $799,344 to Phase II through the Municipal Operators Service Improvement Program (MOSIP).

The expansion project includes a new board room/community room, solar car ports that will generate 100% of the facility’s electricity needs and five new bus maintenance bays. Phase II allows AVTA to be able to support the region’s growing transportation needs and provide future connections to Metrolink, the Palmdale Airport, the proposed XpressWest and High Speed Rail.
