In compliance with the State of New Mexico’s updated stay-at-home order, RoadRUNNER Transit will continue operating its service on a reduced schedule, Monday – Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. until further notice.

Dial-a-Ride, which provides accessible curb-to-curb service for persons with qualifying disabilities and for senior citizens age 60 and over, will operate on the same schedule and customers are asked to contact Dial-a-Ride at 541-2777.

RoadRUNNER Transit is committed to safe practices and are following all appropriate precautions to protect our staff, customers and the public. Transit buses are thoroughly cleaned each evening and disinfected several times throughout the day. In addition, fare-free services remain in effect indefinitely to prevent infectious spread through cash and fare handling. The Mesilla Valley Intermodal Transportation Terminal at 300 W. Lohman will be open during these reduced hours of operation. There is a limit of 10 customers in the lobby at a time and seating is limited to comply with social distancing.

RoadRUNNER Transit reminds its riders that for the wellness of all our riders and the community, please stay home and only take the bus if you have an essential travel need. ESSENTIAL transportation needs include food and critical supplies, medical appointments, pharmacy trips, and travel to and from essential jobs. Families should designate one member to do essential travel, so that other family members can remain at home. If you are sick, stay home and call a healthcare provider if needed.

If you MUST travel by public transit, please remember these tips:

  • Maintain a distance of at least six feet between you and the next person.
  • Limit conversations with drivers and other passengers.
  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds each time.
  • Cough/sneeze into your sleeve.
  • Carry personal hand sanitizers, if possible.
  • Use a mask or scarf, if one is available to cover your entire mouth and nose.
  • Contact a business BEFORE you travel to ensure it is open.
