Metro Division 13 Tour

Please join us for a tour of Metro’s Division 13, a $120 million, 540,000 square foot bus operations & maintenance facility. The three-level complex includes a maintenance facility with 19 service bays for the operation and maintenance of Metro's growing fleet, and 382 employee parking spaces. At capacity, the facility will be able to support approximately 525 employees and 200 buses. 

 The facility achieved a LEED BD+C: New Construction Gold certification and has received numerous awards, including a USGBC Sustainable Innovation Award, Honor Award, for Water Efficiency and a USGBC Los Angeles Chapter Municipal Green Building Award.

  • Sustainable design features include:
  • Rooftop and façade-mounted photovoltaic panels to generate up to 10 percent of the building’s electrical needs.
  • Skylights and white-colored interiors to reflect light, reducing electricity needs.
  • Shade structures and natural ventilation to reduce energy needs.
  • An integrated 275,000-gallon cistern and system of pumps/filters to reuse rainwater for bus washing.
  • A green roof that serves as an employee amenity, and addresses storm water run-off and urban heat island effect. 


The tour will be led by RNL Design, the architects of the facility.
