SANTA FE METROPOLITAN PUBLIC TRANSIT MASTER PLAN
APPROVED BY THE SANTA FE TRANSPORTATION POLICY BOARD
JUNE 25, 2015

The Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), working in conjunction with Santa Fe Trails, Northern New Mexico Regional Transit District (NCRTD) and the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) have released a final draft of the first Santa Fe Metropolitan Public Transit Master Plan. The Santa Fe MPO is tasked with providing transportation planning services for the Santa Fe Metropolitan area. The MPO is comprised of Santa Fe County, Pueblo of Tesuque, City of Santa Fe and the NMDOT.

The 2010 Santa Fe Metropolitan Transportation Plan identified the need for more advanced planning in the areas of pedestrian, bicycle and transit facilities and services. As a result, the MPO has invested in the development of the 2012 Metropolitan Bicycle Master Plan and the pending Metropolitan Public Transit and Pedestrian Master Plans.

Key themes addressed in the Public Transit Master Plan include: Seamless Connectivity, Coordinated Marketing, Technology Assessment, Coordinated Operations Planning, and Connectivity with bicycle and pedestrian modes, Environmental Justice & ADA Accessibility, Preparing for Future Growth, Economic Development, Route Modifications, Infrastructure Needs, Fare Policies, and Outreach.


 

SANTA FE PRE-TEEN AND TEEN INDEPENDENT TRANSIT AND MOBILITY PLAN  APPROVED BY THE SANTA FE TRANSPORTATION POLICY BOARD
FEBRUARY 23, 2017

The Santa Fe MPO hired a professional planning team within the Sites Southwest consulting firm to build on the Public Transit Master Plan. This effort focused solely on youth between the ages of 10 and 17 and how they travel around and through the metro-area and what their perceptions, beliefs and interests are around multiple modes of travels including transit, biking and walking. Emerging national trends show that specific to youth the number of transit, bicycle and walking trips have been increasing steadily at the same time there as been a reduction in the number of vehicle miles traveled. (VMT).

According to the 2010-2014 American Community Survey there are 13,554 youth ages 10-17 in the metro area. We believe that travel patterns of youth in this age range are important to study as they begin to become more independent and transition from relying on parents for transportation needs.

The goal of the plan is to determine when this transition happens, which modes youth begin to use, and to what extent they can use these modes independently. Data, information, trends and direct input by local youth will then be used to consider investments in our transit and transportation network that supports their and future generations mobility independence.
