A new MBTA bus maintenance facility in Quincy will be the first in the transit system to house an electric-battery-powered, zero-emissions vehicle fleet.

The project at 599 Burgin Parkway is one officials touted on Monday as a product of $2.2 billion in federal infrastructure funds set to flow into the agency over the next five years, and a “critical component” of the MBTA’s modernization plans, according to General Manger Steve Poftak.

The Quincy facility will replace an aging, 104-year-old garage, and will be a pioneering force in serving the system’s growing electric fleet, he said.
