SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The Santa Fe mayor is hoping free shuttles will boost the city's nightlife.
The New Mexican reports that Mayor Javier Gonzales is proposing a shuttle service between Santa Fe University of Art and Design, downtown and the Santa Fe Railyard.
Gonzales says the system would start out as a pilot project and run between Aug. 28 and Dec. 20.
He says the transportation would mean a lot more people would be able to safely take advantage of Santa Fe in a whole new way.
He says university students would be able to attend events and help the downtown area grow.
Officials say the shuttles would run every half-hour from 6-11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
University President Larry Hinz says the service would be a welcome opportunity.
