sounds like the government wants to subsidize z-trans. You can't drive a car to and from for five buck so where is the money coming from.

How true, look at the shuttle cost to El Paso airport, and another politician is telling us something that does not make any $$$ sense, No to taxpayers throwing $$$ down another social agenda hole....

I'm sure they are going to depend in part on quantity of people going. I imagine they are going to give it a trial period and then if they don't have enough riders they will discontinue it.

It could make it affordable for people who want to work in Cruces. God knows that a decent paying job is hard to find here even for college grads.

It's PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION all public transportation nationwide is federally funded. If you really want to know the truth call Zia Trans instead of spouting off on matters that you apparently know nothing about. This town is lucky to have an award winning public transit system run by a very capable staff.
GOOD JOB Z-TRAN!! I look forward to going to Cruces

I only notice people complaining about their taxes paying for this and that. Your " taxes" are unaportioned and therefore not going to any projects, public assistance, or back into anything tangible. They just line the pockets of the rich. Period. Taxes taxes blah blah blah.
