Hundreds of Santa Fe Bicyclists Experienced the 1st Pop-up Protected Bike Lane
A few Santa Fe Century riders pedal by in the protected bike lane.
Two special guests - our first rider
and the mayor!
Fun for all ages!
Saturday and Sunday October 9th and 10th the MPO executed Santa Fe's first pop-up protected bike lane on Paseo de Peralta. The MPO was awarded an AARP Community Challenge Grant to fund a pop-up protected bike lane toolkit - allowing the MPO to conduct protected bike lane demonstrations throughout the City. We're already planning the next pop-up protected bike lane with the Safe Routes to School program!

If you experienced the pop-up protected bike lane, you can let us know what you thought about it on the Bicycling and Pedestrian Advisory Committee survey.

Save that $5 for a coffee!
Blue bus may become free permanently
The Mountain Trail “Blue Bus” is a favorite way for locals and visitors alike to access Ten Thousand Waves, fall colors, the Winsor Trail, Ski Santa Fe, and the Santa Fe National Forest. Previously $5 each way, the fare was waived at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now the North Central Regional Transit District (NCRTD) board is poised to vote to eliminate the fare permanently. If you have any comments to share with the NCRTD you may submit them here or via social media (@ridethebluebus) by October 28th, 2021.

You can also attend the virtual board meeting on November 5th, 2021, at 9am.

NCRTD is a member agency of the Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization and their board includes representation from City Councilor Jamie Cassutt.
