The Carlsbad Municipal Transit System (CMTS) was established in June of 1996. CMTS is responsible for the provision of public transit services within the City of Carlsbad corporate limits and portions of Eddy County immediately adjacent to the city. CMTS operates as an in-house, general public dial-a-ride service. The service primarily serves the general public, persons with disabilities, seniors, students and Temporary Assistance To Needy Families (TANF). The CMTS service is a very customer friendly and caring public service.
Presently, CMTS averages approximately 4,800 riders each month. All drivers and staff are trained in CPR, First Aid, Defensive Driving, Blood Bourne Pathogens and are certified with American Passenger Service and Safety. CMTS has a fleet of 17 Maxi Vans, 14 of which are equipped with handicapped lifts.
The current fare is $2.00 per trip per person with a minimum 24 hour notice. Same day service is $5.00 per trip per person. Discount passes are available for $20.00 for a 10 trip pass. CMTS also participates in several transportation programs that offer transportation with no out-of-pocket expense to the rider.
