While continuing to provide an essential service during the COVID-19 outbreak, the North Central Regional Transit District has identified eight of its 29 routes that will be temporarily suspended or modified beginning Wednesday, March 25.
The changes will be in effect until further notice.
Suspended routes are: 290 Edgewood, 305 Taos Express, 400 Los Alamos
Modified routes include the 800 Angel Fire route which will operate Monday through Friday only, no weekend service. The 260 La Cienega, 270 Turquoise Trail, 280 Eldorado and 350 UNM Taos will each operate on a demand request ride basis from 7AM to 6PM. Riders on these routes needing service can call at least 24 hours in advance to schedule pick-up. The scheduled ride will only provide for pickups and drop-offs at designated stops along the existing route.
The NCRTD continues to take aggressive measures to clean and disinfect passenger vehicles. Our top priorities are to continue service to the public, and to keep them and our employees healthy and safe. The District asks that anyone experiencing flu symptoms refrain from boarding our vehicles. Thank you for partnering with us to help prevent the spread of any germs and flu.
