UTA broke ground today on the new Depot District Clean Fuels Technology Center. This will be home to over 150 new clean air fuel and electric buses in 2021. Thanks to all the legislators, Salt Lake City, Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Federal Transit Administration and donors for making this dream a reality. The current garage is too small and too old. The Central Bus Garage lacks the capacity to store UTA’s growing number of buses and the technology to maintain alternative fuel sources, said Interim Executive Director Steve Meyer. That’s why UTA, working with Big-D Construction and Sunroc are starting an extensive renovation project on the former Denver and Rio Grande Railway building, located behind UTA’s headquarters and west of the intermodal transit station on 600 West. Funding for the project will come primarily through grants from the Federal Transit Administration.
