Atomic City Transit will implement a number of route and schedule changes beginning May 24. A draft of the revised route map and schedules can be viewed at AtomicCityTransit.com.
These upcoming changes will also be discussed at the Transportation Board Meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the Public Works Conference Room, located at 2101 Trinity Dr., Suite A2. Basic hours of operation will remain Monday through Friday from approximately 5:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Routes are being renumbered to simplify use. Routes 1, 2, and 3, will all serve the downtown area in some capacity. Route 2 also serves White Rock. Routes 4, 5, and 6 will serve the neighborhoods in Los Alamos.
Peak service on all routes will now run every 30 minutes instead of the current 20/40 minute split.
White Rock service will be enhanced by restructuring Routes 2 and 5 into one new Route 2.
This route will provide service approximately every 15 minutes during peak hours in White Rock and every 30 minutes all day.
The new route will circulate White Rock in a clockwise direction reducing confusion of which side of the street to wait on.
All trips will go to the Transit Center, however every trip will alternate between the Main Hill and the Truck Route.
Buses utilizing the Main Hill will be designated 2M.
