Transit system picks up speed

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

All-day bus service for everyone in the county began last week, with great steps forward and a few setbacks. Seven new bus drivers started driving for Atomic City Transit on Monday, the same day that several inches of snow fell in Los Alamos and White Rock. Transportation Division Manager Nancy Talley and Transit System Manager  Mike Davis spoke to the Leadership Los Alamos class of 2008 on Friday, in the session on local and regional connections.“Monday was a busy day,” Talley  said. “It snowed, it was the first day of all-day service, we had seven new employees, and we had lots of riders who didn’t want to drive in the snow.” She added that there were “a few minor glitches” with service on Monday, but that riders remained cheerful and supportive of the service.One bus was involved in a traffic accident on Friday. “That bus was totaled,” Davis said.Three new buses have already been ordered, and are expected to arrive in March. “Those will be primarily for the Dial a Ride service,” Davis said today. The Dial a Ride service is primarily available to those who have a documented disability or are age 60 and over. It is a curb-to-curb service that operates from 6 a.m.- 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.Residents can call Atomic City Dispatch any time from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
