Los Alamos, Santa Fe RTD Blue bus service stopped after bomb threat

UPDATE (2:25 p.m.): Service has been canceled for the rest of the day for the RTD Los Alamos route following Thursday morning's bomb threat.

The Los Alamos bus is being held at Cities of Gold Casino while authorities continue to inspect the bus, according to RTD Public Information Officer Jim Nagle. Service for many of the other RTD buses has resumed, except for the San Ildefonso route and the Santa Fe to Taos route.

Bus service on the North Central Regional Transit District in Los Alamos and Santa Fe was stopped after a man called in a bomb threat just after 11 a.m. The caller said the bomb was set to detonate at 11:20 a.m. on either the 200 Santa Fe, 300 Taos or 400 Los Alamos bus, according to Nagle.

According to Nagle, the bomb threat was not connected to the series of bomb threats reported across the country and in Santa Fe Thursday. The transit district did receive a phone number connected to the bomb threat and forwarded it to law enforcement authorities, Nagle said.
