For transit lovers, this is exciting.

This is a much needed facility to house the necessary amount of buses for adequate South Shore MBTA bus operations. The current bus garage on Hancock Street is too tiny and cannot house hybrids which is why practically every other bus facility other than Albany Street is getting the new buses. Hopefully they can pull this through without a glitch.

There's been a brouhaha about all this in the area ever since Lowe's closed. A lot of people were afraid it'd be more new condos (Quincy's been having a huge construction rush). A lot of people wanted a smaller supermarket chain like TJ's to move in. A new MBTA car barn makes sense: They outgrew the one on Hancock ages ago. Plus I've heard the school dept wanting to expand the area around the stadium so all field sports would be centralized.

The MBTA Fiscal Board voted to purchase the site. It looks like this is happening for real.

Let's hope there are no delays in constructing and opening the facility.

All transit systems need maintenance. PVTA made a huge one replacing a 100 year old building awhile back. Yes it might not be taxable but no one wants empty buildings in Quincy, especially that close to the downtown.
