Las Cruces Transit District to expand service into El Paso

LAS CRUCES - The South Central Regional Transit District has received approval from the El Paso City Council to begin running bus service into that city.

Executive Director David Armijo said they now have all of the government approvals needed — including from the federal government, since the new route will cross the state line — and he hopes to have the service running by the first week of January.

The new service will extend the existing Purple route, which now runs from Anthony to Sunland Park. There will be two stops in El Paso, at the Westside Transit Center on Remcon Circle and the Northgate Transit Center in the northeast part of El Paso. From there, riders will be able to take Sun Metro buses to just about anywhere in the city.

“You’ll actually have a situation where you can take either the Red or the Blue line, connect on the Purple line in Anthony four times in the morning and four times in the afternoon, and you can then go all the way to Sunland Park and it will now go into the Westside Transit Center where you can connect with 13 bus lines and go anywhere you want to go in El Paso at that point,” Armijo said.
