The Mid-Region Council of Governments has started the next round of public meetings aimed at developing near-and long-term transit, land use, and parking strategies in the UNM/CNM/Sunport area. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 5
The last series of workshops identified project objectives and transportation needs of area neighborhoods, businesses, and major institutions. The focus of the next three scheduled meetings is now moving toward identifying specific strategies to improve transportation in the area. The public is invited to review several possible strategies that have been identified – including new transit routes – and provide feedback.
The meetings will be held:
Tuesday, January 29, 6 pm – 8 pm
Central United Methodist Church
201 University Boulevard NE
Wednesday, January 30, noon – 1 pm
UNM Student Union Building, Lobo Room A&B
Tuesday, February 5, noon – 1 pm
CNM Student Resource Center, Room 204

The UNM/CNM/Sunport corridor is considered the region's largest activity center – attracting more than 74,000 people every day. While the area has excellent east/west transit service on Lomas and Central, it lacks adequate north/south transit connections.
The study has been underway since June and recommendations should be complete by late 2013. The goal is to identify a specific transit route to best address the area's needs. That route would then be eligible for federal funding and ready for implementation.
