TriMet Powell Garage

The TriMet Powell Garage was built as a temporary facility over 45 years ago and in need of modernization to improve safety, increase capacity, and improve employee well-being. Construction of the new TriMet Bus Maintenance Facility included a phased rebuild of the entire 17-acre site, all while keeping the 24/7 facility active and operational. The first phase involved building a 24,000 square foot fuel and wash building which operates a bus wash system that reclaims and treats water, allowing TriMet to recycle 300 gallons of water per minute during operation of the three new bus wash bays. The second phase of the build more than doubled the original bus maintenance area. The facility now houses 22 bus maintenance bays, and a new 400,000 square foot concrete-paved bus yard which can accommodate over 300 buses. A second story was constructed to create more office space, a new fitness center, training rooms, roof-top patio, and spacious break area. The project also added 215 surface parking spaces for employees.
