Burns Supports New Jersey Transit’s Zero-Emission Bus Garage Modernization Plan
New Jersey Transit (NJT) plans to transform 16 agency garages as part of a clean-energy strategy that will convert the agency’s entire bus fleet to zero-emission operations by 2040.
A multi-stage overhaul of the country’s fifth-largest bus transit system’s maintenance garages will be necessary to accommodate demands of new electric charging infrastructure.
Likely upgrades will include expanding facility footprints as well as providing structural support for rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and power-charging equipment.
Supporting AECOM, Burns is tasked with planning and designing resilient utility supplies, electrical service infrastructure, and structural upgrades at the Hilton Bus Garage.
Burns will also survey State of Good Repair and identify facility upgrades needed at the remaining 15 NJT garages. The survey will ensure charging and power-supply infrastructure can be integrated while maintaining uninterrupted mission-critical operations.
