The water consumed in the bus wash bays is reclaimed and reused for cleaning the vehicles. The MTG features radiant floor heating, rainwater collection bins and auxiliary power supply units. Air quality sensors are continuously monitoring carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide levels and automatically provide ventilation when required. The roof structure is designed to support future active solar or photovoltaic collection systems.

MATBUS has developed a strong partnership with (including front-door transit service to) the Fargo Microsoft campus, the largest Microsoft facility outside of Seattle. One of the first Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certified facilities in North Dakota, the Fargo campus is home to a major Microsoft Dynamics development center. In addition to research and development, tour participants will explore the offices of Microsoft customer service/support, IT, inside sales and marketing teams.

Option 2: University and Transit Partnerships

NDSU’s Downtown Campuses are anchored by Renaissance Hall and Richard H. Barry Hall. Both structures reopened as campus buildings within the last decade, and have been major contributors to a revitalization of Fargo’s Downtown area.

Renaissance Hall, a fully-modernized facility, is located in a 100-year-old building, formerly a farm implement warehouse and dealership. It now houses NDSU’s visual arts department and major components of the architecture and landscape architecture department. Richard H. Barry Hall is home to the College of Business, Department of Agribusiness & Applied Economics, North Dakota Trade Office and Center for Global Initiatives and Leadership. R.H. Barry Hall is comprised of the former Pioneer Mutual Life building, built in 1925, and a 75,000-square-foot addition. The Hall features 12 conference rooms, a two-story atrium, 12 classrooms, 250-seat auditorium and a six-story faculty officer tower. NDSU relies heavily on MATBUS to provide mobility for students between the downtown and main campus. This downtown revitalization has resulted in significant ridership increases for the MATBUS transit system. Route 33, MATUS’ direct link between the campuses, ranks second in the system’s ridership with almost 250,000 annual rides provided.

MATBUS will be providing tours of its Metro Transit Garage (the MTG), a 55,000 –square foot, $7 million facility jointly owned by the Cities of Fargo and Moorhead.
