Transit tips

Tips for Catching A Bus

Wait at the posted Bus Stop signs, and make sure you are visible to the driver. Buses only stop at posted signs. All buses are equipped with ramps or wheelchair lifts. Transit stop signs are located at many locations along each route. If you are not sure where your nearest stop is, please call the office at (575) 624-6766. Wait at the sign. When the bus approaches, look straight at the driver so they will know to stop for you.

Tips for Exiting a Bus

Once buses are in motion, they will not board additional passengers. Drivers may not delay their departure from a point to wait for a transferring customer. Please be alert for your destination. Approximately one half-block before your stop, signal the driver to let you off. If you are unfamiliar with the area, ask the driver to announce your street.

Route Transfers

If you need to transfer to a second bus to complete your trip, ask the driver for a complimentary transfer slip when you board the first bus. Once you leave the fare box area, the driver can no longer give you a transfer. When boarding your connecting bus, present your transfer slip instead of paying an additional fare. Transfers cannot be used for the return portion of a round trip.

Be sure to let the driver know where you want to be let off in time for the driver to make a safe, smooth stop.

Enjoy your ride!
