The State of New Mexico receives federal funding through the New Mexico Department of Transportation from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA under U.S.C. 5311). The New Mexico Department of Transportation administers this program and provides funding in assistance to local transportation programs.
The operation of Pecos Trails Transit System relies heavily on funds from this program that provides 50 percent of our operating expenses and 80 percent of both administrative and capital expenses. Transit is seeking to purchase two 24-passenger buses.
