TUCSON, Ariz. -- Sun Tran's new northwest bus facility was unveiled Thursday.

The 25 acre facility on North Sun Tran Boulevard is a state of the art complex that will store and maintain Sun Tran's expanding fleet of buses.

"Because we have this new facility we can expand our fleet, therefore provide more service.  And we can do that because we have funding provided  by  RTA so in the years to come we'll be able to provide even more routes and more frequent bus service," said Michelle Johnson with Sun Tran.

The project has been completed in three phases over a seven year period.
