Centre de transport Stinson, or Stinson Centre, is a future STM maintenance and administrative facility located at Stinson Street and Montpellier Street in the borough of Saint-Laurent, Montreal. The 38,400 square-metre, two-storey building will be able to house 200 rigid and 100 articulated buses. The project and funding was announced in November 2011. Transports Quebec will fund 75 per cent of the $160-million cost, with the rest coming from the STM. Construction is expected to start in June 2012 and completion of the facility is expected in the fall of 2013.[1]

The STM surpassed the 400 million rider mark in 2011. To meet the projected 40 per cent increase in ridership in the 2020 Plan, it was recommended service be improved by 32%. The bus fleet would therefore have to be expanded by 25% from 1680 to 2100 buses. This new facility will aid in storing the buses needed. The facility will also be capable of maintaining and storing hybrid buses, electric buses, and electric midibuses.[2]

Stinson Centre will be LEED Gold certified, the first building to achieve this in Canada. The facility will have to minimize effects on surface water and the surrounding environment during construction. Where possible, the materials used in this facility will be from local sources. To mitigate disruption to residences around the facility, the path of buses is kept well within the perimeter of the facility. There is more use of natural lighting within the building with spaces for light to shine through over the maintenance and storage area, as well as large windows in the administration section. The building will feature a green roof with more green spaces around the building and a communal green space near the offices. A system will recover a portion of graywater and rainwater, and another system will recover 85 per cent of heat generated.[3]
