Santa Monica Big Blue Bus Facility Expansion

Santa Monica Big Blue Bus Facility Expansion

This expansion of the existing City of Santa Monica Municipal Bus Maintenance Facility includes a 65,000-square-foot maintenance building, a 250,000-square-foot bus parking lot, all new site utilities, and landscaping. The maintenance building features specialty repair bays and vehicle lifts for both standard and articulating buses and includes equipment for complete service. The project was constructed while maintaining full operation of the City’s existing bus operations.


Big Blue Bus operations required a concrete floor that was able to withstand oil and other lubricant spills, as well as the occasional mechanical part falling without damage. To mitigate these challenges, Morley utilized a light-colored dry shake cementitious material as well as a combination of hardeners and oil-resistant sealers applied both during and after the placement process. The result was a 55,000-square-foot service area concrete floor with a uniform light color and a hardness in excess of 10,000 psi.
