Sustainable transformation: Electrical bus depot in Bogotá
This is how ACO helped redesign an old scrap yart to a modern E-bus terminal

The depot is located at Carrera 116 # 19A - 49, a property that formerly functioned as a scrap metal storage area and now became the first depot for Ethe electric buses of Bogotá. The infrastructure and technology of the new depot are designed to be environmentally friendly. The function of the depot is to provide all the services necessary for eletric buses to operate, such as parking, recharging, setup, and maintenance. All monitoring activities required to guarantee the permanent availability of the vehicles to provide the public transport service are also carried out at this bus depot.

The depot offers a broad range of distinct functions: there are 120 parking spaces for buses with recharging points, a washing area with a wastewater treatment plant, parking lots and bicycle parking spaces for officials and visitors, environmental management areas, storage areas, and a technology area for the adaptation of the information and communication systems of the buses. One of the great advances of the infrastructure is the design, construction, and electrification of the 56 dual charging points, which allows the simultaneous recharging of more than 100 buses. The various requirements for the surface water management of this area are fulfilled by reliable ACO solutions.
