NCRTD Buses To Operate At Full Capacity Beginning July 6
Upon the re-opening of the State of New Mexico, RTD Blue Buses will eliminate capacity restrictions effective Tuesday, July 6. Additionally, reservations will no longer be mandatory on routes previously requiring them.
Federal law also requires passengers and drivers (with limited exceptions) to wear a properly fitting mask at all times while on-board. Social distancing is encouraged when possible.
The NCRTD will continue to take aggressive measures to clean and disinfect passenger vehicles and provide air circulation.
The North Central Regional Transit District provides fare-free bus service on 27 of 29 routes to a service area that encompasses over 10,000 square miles of north central New Mexico including the counties of Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe and Taos.
Many NCRTD Routes Now Operating On Regular Route Schedules
Many North Central Regional Transit District RTD Blue Bus routes have begun to operate on their regular route schedules. Seating remains limited to provide social distance and adhere to groups of five or less. Please visit the routes section at RidetheBlueBus.com for the latest on all routes.
Face coverings are required to ride the Blue Bus and must remain on for the duration of one’s trip. The NCRTD continues to take aggressive measures to clean and disinfect passenger vehicles daily. The District’s top priority is 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.
