The North Central Regional Transit District dedicated the its new headquarters in Española during a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday.
The Jim West Regional Transit Center is named after the late Jim West, a Los Alamos County councilor, who was among the founders of the NCRTD.
The opening of the new facility took over a year as contractors faced roadblocks during the construction phase of the facility.
Purchase and renovation of the public transportation facility was made possible by grants from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Federal Transit Administration, Congressional funding and the voter approved Transit Gross Receipts Tax.
The NCRTD had been renting office space in Santa Fe.
The NCRTD consists of eleven member entities including Santa Fe County, Rio Arriba County, Taos County, Los Alamos County, the City of Santa Fe, City of Española, Pueblo of Pojoaque, Ohkay Owingeh, Tesuque Pueblo, San Ildefonso Pueblo and Santa Clara Pueblo.
The North Central Regional Transit District provides free bus service connecting communities and pueblos throughout the counties of north central New Mexico including Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe and Taos.
