THOUSAND PALMS, Calif. — SunLine Transit officials debuted the agency's "permanent home" this week — a $16 million, 25,000-square-foot administration building that replaces "temporary" portable offices being used since 1985, reported CBS Local 2 News.

"We continue to expand both our alternative fuels and our transit," said SunLine GM Lauren Skiver, "in those 30-year-old trailers, that were never designed to be a workspace for employees for that amount of time."

In 2006, with the trailers coming to the end of their useful life, the agency's board approved plans for the new Administrative Building, which was funded by state and federal funds.

"SunLine focused on creating a “green” building, supporting the Agency’s vision and focus on our environment. Also, by using local firms, we created local jobs. SunLine Staff, who has been housed in temporary trailers for close to 30 years, now has a beautiful “permanent” home,” SunLine Transit Agency CEO/General Manager, Lauren Skiver said.
