About the project
MTA Bus is planning to reconstruct and expand the existing Jamaica Bus Depot located at 165-18 Tuskegee Airmen Way in Queens. The existing depot is old and out of date.
The project would modernize the depot and provide the facilities needed to operate, maintain, and store up to 300 buses. This would allow us to serve the current and potential future bus route assignments and reconfigurations. It would also create more capacity to accommodate new bus service demands in the borough of Queens. The new facility will also allow MTA bus to maintain and deploy a modern bus fleet. This includes articulated and electric buses, so that MTA can better serve Queens for decades to come.
Construction is expected to begin in 2023 and finish in 2026.
MTA NYCT has prepared and completed a Supplemental Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Reconstruction and Expansion of the Jamaica Bus Depot (SEA JBD). The Supplemental Environmental Assessment for the Jamaica Bus Depot is available for review from February 23, 2022, through March 24, 2022, to afford agencies and the public reasonable time to consider the SEA JBD before MTA NYCT issues its written Findings Statement.
