Transit > Public asked to assess schedules for five-year plan

By Arin McKenna

The North Central Regional Transit District celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2007 and is now looking ahead to the next five years.
To that end, NCRTD has hired the KFH Group and Southwest Planning and Marketing to conduct 10 public meetings to get feedback and service enhancement suggestions from its riders. NCRTD staff will use that information to update its five-year service plan.
“We are hoping that these public meetings will generate more interest in the service, as well as knowledge of the demands and needs of the general public that we’re currently serving or not serving, because that’s critical for us to improve our service,” said NCRTD transit operations manager Mike Kelly.
NCRTD has covered more than 10 thousand square miles in North Central New Mexico and provided more than 185,000 free passenger trips in the last fiscal year. Routes connect communities and pueblos within Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe and Taos counties.
The free service is funded though a 70-percent gross receipts tax and 30-percent federal grants. NCRTD’s FY2012 budget was just over $11 million.
NCRTD recently received the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) 2012 Transportation System of the Year award.
