aps bus depots

Supporting an Underrated Component of Education: Transportation

Without safe and reliable transportation to school, no learning happens. Albuquerque Public Schools is modernizing its transportation infrastructure which includes the construction of new bus depots; places for the Transportation Department team to call ‘home’ during the day while they work to ensure every child has a ride to school.

APS Bus Depots


Albuquerque, New Mexico

Facility Size:

45,577 SQ FT Combined

Like many organizations, recruiting has become an increasing challenge for APS over the years. But these positions (like bus drivers and support staff) are critical for our education system to run smoothly, especially for the children who rely solely on the bus to get to/from school. As a result, APS has made it a priority to modernize its administrative workspaces to help ensure it remains a competitive employer during this labor shortage.

APS was able modernize an existing space for one depot and build ground-up for another. ties.

The modular interior system implemented at both locations gave it the flexibility to express its culture and mission and manifest a consistent, bright vibe across the two facilities.

The depots consist of offices, conference rooms, breakroom spaces, kitchen and dining areas, training classrooms, and writeable surfaces throughout.
