HOLLAND, Mich.—The transit system Holland and Zeeland residents depend on is operating out of a new facility.

The head of the Michigan Department of Transportation helped cut the ribbon to MAX Transit’s new headquarters on October 4. 

“On behalf of Governor Rick Snyder and the state of Michigan, I'd like to say how proud we are of all your accomplishments. The MAX has come a long way from the ‘Dial-A-Ride’ service that started in 1974,” said MDOT Director Kirk Steudle.  “Your work ethic and positive attitude have made all of this a reality,” he continued.  “This facility that will not only serve customers better, it will improve employee morale and employee engagement.  That’s huge. That’s immeasurable.”

The $4.7 million building is located on Greenway Drive in Holland.  The 33,500 square foot facility features an inside storage space for 28 buses, a conference/training center, office areas, a driver lounge and patio, and a locker room area.

Development and construction of the MAX Transit facility was paid for by federal capital grants and matching state funds.
