  What you need to know!



The map shows where Pecos Trails buses go. Find the route closest to your starting point. If the place where you're going is on a different route, the map will show where you can transfer between routes. Usually, this is at our main transfer point, on Main Street between North 5th and North 6th.



Check the schedules to see when your route runs. Buses are not assigned exact times at every stop, so the schedules show major intersections; from there, you can estimate when we'll get to your stop.


Transit stops

Board the bus at the posted Bus Stop Signs. Buses stop only at posted stops. Make sure you are not out of sight or waiting behind a shelter. All PTTS buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts. Transit stop signs are located at many locations along each route. If you're not sure where your nearest stop is, please call. Wait at the sign. When the bus approaches, look straight at the driver so he'll know you want him to stop for you.

Once buses are in motion, they will not board additional passengers. Drivers may not delay their departure from a point to wait for a transferring customer. Please be alert for your destination. Approximately one half block, before your stop, signal the Driver to let you off, if you are unfamiliar with the area ask the Driver to call out your street.

If you need to transfer to a second route to complete your trip, ask the driver for a transfer slip (they're free) when you board the first route. Once you leave the fare box area, the driver can no longer give you a transfer. Then, just give your transfer to the second bus driver, instead of paying a fare. Transfers are not good on the issuing route, so you cannot use them for a round trip.

Be sure to let the driver know where you want to get off in time for him to make a safe, smooth stop.

Enjoy your ride!
