The City is getting ready to approve a rezoning application in order to build a new Sun Metro operations and maintenance facility on airport property which should move major operations away from the Union Depot area. The new facility will be located at 10151 Montana Ave, just west of Global Reach/Yarbrough Dr.
Future Location of Sun Metro Operations facility.
The move has been in the planning stages for years and should allow Sun Metro growing space for a future enlarged fleet which will include Bus Rapid Transit units. The current downtown location is landlocked and surrounded by railroad tracks, Paisano Drive, and Union Depot.
It is unknown what the City plans to do with the Union Depot facility. City Council will vote on May 15, 2012, on the rezoning application.
