Service Announcements   
  • SERVICE ALERT Monday, March 27th until further notice - Rt 6 stop closures

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.

  • NMDOT Public Transportation Rider Survey

The New Mexico Department of Transportation Transit and Rail Division is evaluating the needs of New Mexico's public transportation services. As part of the study, they are asking public transit riders to fill out a survey. 

The survey is available online as well as in paper format on our buses, and it will be available through March 30th.

  • SERVICE ALERT Starting Monday, December 12th Until Further Notice

Peak service on routes 1 and 6 will be suspended until further notice beginning Monday, December 12th due to staffing shortages. We apologize for the inconvenience to our passengers.

  • SERVICE ALERT Beginning Thursday, November 17th Until Further Notice

Due to staffing shortages, Route 3 Central / Canyon will not operate. 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. 

Thank you for your understanding, and we apologize for the inconvenience this may cause our riders.
