City sets community meeting on Northeast transit projects

The City of El Paso’s Capital Improvement Department has scheduled a community meeting on Wednesday, December 9th, 2015 at 6:00 pm at Irvin High School (9465 Roanoke Street) in order to give El Pasoans an opportunity to view the final design plans for the Dyer Rapid Transit System and the Northgate Transfer Center.

The Dyer RTS will offer El Pasoans a high quality transit system, which will connect Northeast El Paso to Central and Downtown El Paso.

The total length of this $35.8 million dollar project will be approximately 10.2 miles, and will include all the services and amenities that are found on the recently constructed Mesa RTS such as 60-foot articulated buses, a bus service of 10 minutes (peak service) to 15 minutes (off-peak service), landscaped stations that are spaced about a mile apart, and the ability to lengthen green traffic signals.

The Northgate Transfer Center is a $14.9 million dollar project, which will serve as a main Northeast feeder to the Dyer Rapid Transit System.  It will include services and amenities such as enclosed waiting areas with a comfortable environment, canopies at bus bays with electronic on-street message boards, and ticketing & information offices.

These two projects are part of the City’s commitment to enhance El Paso’s regional transportation system.
