RoadRUNNER Transit Dial-a-Ride Upcoming Changes

RoadRUNNER Transit Dial-a-Ride paratransit service will continue offering complimentary single trips to and from City-operated senior program sites to Dial-a-Ride users after the mandated $2.00 per trip fare goes into effect on Monday, July 1. City Council approved RoadRUNNER Transit to start enforcing the $2.00 fare for trips on Dial-A-Ride at the May 20 City Council meeting. The Transit Tariff has always said that Dial-A-Ride will charge $2.00 per trip. This is consistent with Americans with Disabilities (ADA) guidelines. The paratransit service is provided for ADA qualified individuals with disabilities and senior citizens. Trips are defined as one way from pick-up point to destination point. 

Fares can be paid with cash or check upon boarding a Dial-a-Ride bus. Exact change is required as bus drivers do not carry change. Tokens will be available for purchase that can be used instead of cash or check. They are available at the Mesilla Valley Intermodal Transit Terminal (MVITT) Center, 300 W. Lohman Avenue and the Dial-a-Ride office at 1501-A E. Hadley Avenue. 

Dial-a-Ride customers also have the option of using the RoadRUNNER regular bus service. Rates are .50 per ride or $1.00 for a day pass that is good for unlimited same-day rides anywhere in the city. 

For more information about Dial-a-Ride or to request an application, please call 575/541-2777. Applications, transit routes and other information are also available at roadrunner.las-cruces.org. MVITT is located at 300 West Lohman Avenue.
