RoadRUNNER Transit Routes to Medical Facilities 2018
The City of Las Cruces, this week, is joining other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in the 13th annual “Dump the Pump Day” movement, to encourage residents to ride public transportation instead of driving a car. And during this time, the City would like to remind Las Cruces residents that public transportation could help get residents to and from weekday medical appointments with fixed route services.
Route 2 for example can transport commuters to medical facilities on or along Lohman Avenue and Telshor Boulevard. This particular route runs every thirty minutes in each direction, and can directly transport riders to hospitals, various medical complexes, doctor’s offices, rehab centers and acute care facilities.
While Route 2 aids commuters in getting to medical appointments, it also transports riders between New Mexico State University (NMSU) and Dona Ana Community College East Mesa Campus, and between NMSU and Downtown Las Cruces.
Route 1, in addition, serves those who visit the new Veteran’s Clinic on Del Rey Boulevard. That route runs every hour on weekdays.
You can also take advantage of a Fare Free Week through Saturday, to get to know routes you may not already be familiar with. Also, sign up to win free (1-day, 7-day, or 30-day) transit passes this week at the Mesilla Valley Intermodal Transit Terminal (300 W. Lohman Avenue).
RoadRUNNER Transit aims to provide safe, dependable, affordable, and convenient transportation services to the citizens of Las Cruces, and may also help to alleviate increasing congestion on the City’s roadways.
The “Dump the Pump Day” movement began in 2006 when gas prices were $3 per gallon. You can find more information on the RoadRUNNER Schedules and Fares by visiting www.las-cruces.org.
