Pecos Trails Transit
Pecos Trails and Handivan provides service
to a 28.2 square mile area, covering all areas of the City of Roswell. The service consist
of five fixed routes and a four van on demand response. These routes operate in a circular
configuration with buses traveling in opposite directions, one gong clockwise and the
other counter clockwise. This allows us to cover a much larger area of the City and serve
a greater number of people. This configuration has allowed us to cross Main Street in four
places and provides an opportunity for passengers to transfer to a Main Street bus without
having to come to the station.
In 1996 Pecos Trails Transit and Handivan made 182,178 passenger trips
of which approximately 25% were person with disabilities, 15% were elderly and 60% were
full fare passengers.
The system has become a sound alternative form of transportation for the citizens of
Roswell. We are in the process of putting in place bus stop signs. The system now just
needs some fine tuning, as in adjusting schedules and routes to better fit the customers.
