At Oppenheimer, the bus will turn right off of Central then turn left onto Trinity and continue on to White Rock.

2014 Bandelier Shuttle Schedule

Atomic City Transit is operating a seasonal shuttle service from the White Rock Visitor Center to Bandelier National Monument from May 23rd through October 27th in 2014. Bandelier visitors must use the shuttle service between the hours of 9am and 3pm. See the 2014 Bandelier Shuttle Schedule for details and exceptions.

Routes & Schedules

Hard copies of the current Route and Schedule Packet are available on buses. Just ask your driver for a copy. A new Ride Guide is being finalized and will be printed and available on buses soon.

Route 2 Serves Airport Upon Request

ACT Route 2 serves the airport (LAM) upon request. Riders should advise the Route 2 driver of airport terminal building destination when boarding the bus. Riders should call 661-RIDE (7433) to request a Route 2 pick-up at the airport terminal building.

Pajarito Acres Service

Service to the Pajarito Acres area is now provided via ACT's curb to curb Dial-a-Ride Service. Those with a documented disability or who are age 60 and over can schedule rides up to three days in advance. The general public may request same day Dial-a-Ride service.

In addition, after Route 2 (Counter-Clockwise) completes the final two runs through White Rock at the end of the day, these buses will turn into Dial-a-Ride vehicles upon request in order to deliver riders to specific locations in White Rock, including Pajarito Acres. Riders requesting a Dial-a-Ride drop off should be sure to let their driver know when they board the bus. To further clarify, these are the Route 2 runs that leave the Transit Center at 6:27pm and 6:57pm each evening and arrive at their final stop in White Rock (Hwy 4 & Sherwood) at 7:00pm and 7:30pm respectively each evening.
