Bus Routes Information

Routes


Due to a shortage of vehicle operators, Roswell Transit is currently unable to run our side routes on a schedule. We only have bus available to cover all of the side route stops.  If you need a ride from any bus stop that is not on our Main Street route, please call our office at (575) 624-6766.  We will radio our side route vehicle operator, alert them of your need, and give you an estimated time it will take them to get to you.  For those passengers who need rides from our terminal to a side route bus stop, please be patient and our side route vehicle operator will pick you up at their next opportunity.

Roswell Transit will appreciate passenger input in developing its new routes and schedule. Please use the message button on our Facebook page, or send an email to s.furciniti@roswell-nm.gov with information regarding how you normally utilize the system. This information will be kept strictly confidential.

Please check back for future developments.

Tips for Catching A Bus


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 buses are equipped with ramps or wheelchair lifts. Transit stop signs are located at many locations along each route. If you are not sure where your nearest stop is, please call the office at (575) 624-6766. Wait at the sign. When the bus approaches, look straight at the driver so they will know to stop for you.

Tips for Exiting A Bus


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 announce your street.

Route Transfers


If you need to transfer to a second route to complete your trip, ask the driver for a transfer slip (they are free) when you board the first route. Once you leave the fare box area, the driver can no longer give you a transfer. When boarding your connecting bus, present your transfer 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!
