New Mexico Statewide Public Transportation Plan
The New Mexico Department of Transportation’s Transit and Rail Division is working towards completing its first strategic Statewide Public Transportation Plan focused primarily on rural and intercity public transportation services. Our purposes in developing this plan are: 1) Identify public transportation usage, demand and needs, with a focus on rural and intercity public transportation; and 2) Provide clear and concise public transportation performance measures to identify and prioritize projects across the State. The Draft Plan is now available by clicking the following link:

With your help, we believe the New Mexico Statewide Public Transportation Plan will help all of us who are involved in rural and intercity public transportation improve our services and become more competitive nationally. We are asking that you review and comment on the draft Plan by May 1, 2010. Additionally, we will be asking each of the State’s Regional Planning Organizations and Metropolitan Planning Organizations to include discussion of the Plan on their agendas between February 22 and April 16. We plan on participating in those meetings by being available to address any questions or recommendations that the organizations’ members have. Each of you may also address questions or comments on the draft Plan to me via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to receiving your input and to working with you to make this Plan a working document we can all use.
