Shuttle Pilot Project Updates Routes, Schedule

The free shuttle serving T or C and Elephant Butte this summer is getting an update to routes and scheduling the weekend of August 4th-6th.

A summary of the changes:

  • The shuttle will not run on Sunday.
  • The shuttle will run on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 3PM until Midnight.
  • There are now two routes. The Business Loop Shuttle stops at various establishments in T or C and Elephant Butte. The Lake Shuttle goes the other direction, but makes all the same business stops, and adds a run through Elephant Butte Lake State Park.
  • A stop will be added at Casa Taco in Elephant Butte, replacing the stop at the Family Dollar in Elephant Butte.

Riders are invited to inform their driver of their intended destination upon boarding.

Stops are marked with orange barrels marked ‘SAFE RIDE SHUTTLE STOPS HERE’.

The shuttle is a pilot project produced through a collaboration between Sierra County, the city of Truth or Consequences, the city of Elephant Butte, Sierra Vista Hospital, New Mexico Office Of Substance Abuse Prevention, and Main Street T or C. The county and municipalities are covering costs during the pilot project period of July 1st through September 1st.
