New Mexico DOT partners to provide commuting solution

Posted on August 15, 2019

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is partnering with Commute with Enterprise to provide commuters traveling to and from Farmington, Santa Fe, Los Lunas, and Las Cruces with a vanpooling option through the "NM Go!" program.

NM Go! expands and enhances regional transportation options by providing a flexible public transportation alternative to commuters who are not currently served by fixed route service, those working outside of fixed route schedules, or those with longer commutes — typically exceeding 20 miles each way.

The program, which currently operates 36 routes with more than 250 passengers per day, has taken more than 200 cars off the road. It aims to grow to more than 650 passengers per day by the end of the year. NM Go! also helps NMDOT collect data about commuting patterns that will help improve the state's transportation infrastructure and enhance local and regional mobility.

Commuters interested in joining the program can visit the Commute with Enterprise webpage to determine if they can join an existing group or create a new one. Participants traveling to and from Farmington, Santa Fe, Los Lunas, or Las Cruces can obtain a 33% discount on the monthly rate, while also helping increase federal transit formula grant funds in these areas to potentially make the program financially self-sustaining.

Companies looking to enhance transportation options for their employees can also partner with Enterprise to offer the program as an employee benefit.

Commute with Enterprise – a service of Enterprise Rent-A-Car – provides sustainable and cost-effective local transportation options. The Enterprise team works with organizational leaders to create commuting solutions that improve recruiting, retention, and employee engagement, while driving productivity, lowering costs and reducing environmental impact.
