  • SERVICE REDUCTIONS Due to Staffing Shortages

Due to staffing shortages, some of our services have been reduced. We are actively recruiting drivers, and will resume services when we have staff available. Thank you for your understanding, and we apologize for the inconvenience this may cause our riders.

  • Route 3 Central / Canyon is suspended November 17, 2022 until further notice. Service to Entrada Dr (bus stops #570 at Entrada Dr & Camino Entrada, and #571 Entrada & Camino Entrada) will be serviced by Route 1 Downtown Circulator every 30 minutes (no need to call for pickup.) 

    Additionally, the Route 1 bus stop #405 at the LAC Airport will pick up on-demand during the Rt 3 cancellation – call our administrative office (505) 661-7433 to request pick-up at the Airport. 
  • Peak Service on Routes 1 and 6 is suspended December 12, 2022 until further notice. Peak service is highlighted in yellow on the timetables found on our Routes & Schedules page.

  • Detour and Bus Stop Closures in Aspen School Area (affects Rt 6 and Express Routes)Monday, March 27th until further notice: We will be closing one (1) bus stop in the Aspen School Area East of 35th St for the duration of construction work in the area. Because this bus stop is typically used as a transfer point for our Express Routes in the afternoon, the detour and stop closures will change on days that elementary schools are in session.

    On days that elementary schools are in session: Route 6 – North Mesa and all after-school Express Routes 7 through 10 will detour onto Walnut St from 33rd St, and a temporary bus stop will be made available on 33rd St and Villa St. 

    Express Route passengers who board at the 33rd St and Walnut St bus stop #545 near Aspen Elementary will be able to utilize the temporary bus stop in front of Aspen School. Those passengers who transfer from another Express Route to Express Route 9 to go to North Mesa will make the transfer at the temporary bus stop in front of Aspen School.

    On days that elementary schools are not in session: Route 6 – North Mesa will not travel on Villa St East of 3th St, and three (3) bus stops will be closed in addition to the temporary stop on 33rd St and Villa St. The 3 closed stops will be: stop #545 at 33rd St & Walnut St, stop #546 at Villa St & 35th St, and stop #547 at Villa St & 34th St.

    During the stop closures, we ask that Route 6 passengers use the closest unaffected bus stops at either 35th St and Villa St, or at Villa and 37th St.
