New Mexico Passenger Transportation Association (NMPTA)
The New Mexico Passenger Transportation Association was established as a nonprofit corporation in 1987. Since its inception, NMPTA has been the collective voice for both public and private transportation providers in both rural and urban areas across New Mexico.
Under a professional services agreement with the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s Public Transportation Programs Bureau, the NMPTA coordinates training and provides technical support for New Mexico’s rural transit providers and sub-grantees. Training and support are directed primarily to transit programs funded through the Federal Transit Administration’s 5310 program, which serves senior and disabled populations, and 5311 program, which provides transit for any rural area or small town. In addition, NMPTA publishes quarterly newsletters, coordinates Board development and meetings, arranges training for members and non-members, and organizes the annual NMPTA Conference and Van/Bus Roadeo.
