Project Description

The Islais Creek Motor Coach Maintenance and Operations Facility project improves bus service for Muni customers by creating additional storage space to house the SFMTA’s growing fleet of environmentally friendly hybrid motor coaches. The project also improves the current site by constructing energy efficient buildings that will be occupied by SFMTA staff.
