Carlsbad Municipal Transit Offering New Year’s Eve Safe Rides


We want to make sure that everyone starts 2022 off on a good note. To help ensure everyone’s safety, our Carlsbad Municipal Transit System will be offering free safe rides from 6 p.m. Dec. 31 through 2 a.m. Jan. 1. We will have two transit vans out that night – each with a driver and someone to take calls.

How does it work? Just call (575) 887-2121. We encourage pre-registration any time before New Year’s Eve. We’ll pick you up from your residence (within city limits) and take you to your desired location. You call us again when you are ready to go home. The City of Carlsbad is proud to assist the Eddy County DWI Program in ensuring that everyone has a safe and happy New Year by keeping impaired drivers off the streets.  COVID-19 safety precautions will be in place. 

Thank you to Transit Director Josh Moore and everyone with Transit for working hard to make sure all of our residents make it home safely. If you would like to learn more about our daily transit routes, please visit
