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.

——————————————————

If you live in the Santa Fe Metropolitan area, you know how the bus service strives to cover the city and make it possible for everyone to get just about anywhere in town without a car. We’ve come a long way since The Santa Fe Trail was a 19th-century transportation route through central North America and the railroad came to town in 1880. We’ve got a modern transit system for our modern town. If you are heading to critical medical services, work, shopping or downtown we want to make sure you can get there with transit.

Now, the Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization wants to make our transportation system even better. Ridership is booming, and transit officials are working on the creation of a Santa Fe Public Transit Master Plan. With more people than ever using Santa Fe transit systems, the public is being asked to make suggestions on how to improve service. The goal is to improve routes, keep costs down, and provide high quality, safe transportation to keep Santa Fe a high rolling town.

The Santa Fe MPO has hired KFH Group out of Austin, Texas and Southwest Planning from Santa Fe to assist with the development of the coordinated Public Transit Master Plan.  KFH Group, Inc. is an experienced firm of transportation professionals, dedicated to providing assistance to local, state, and federal organizations to improve public transportation services.
