295 Quinella Rd, Sunland Park, NM South Central Rural Transit District (SCRTD) is a regional transit district serving incorporated and unincorporated communities in the counties of Dona Ana, Sierra, Otero, and El Paso counties; the cities of Anthony, El Paso, Elephant Butte, Las Cruces, Mesilla, and Sunland Park, and the Villages of Hatch and Williamsburg. The purpose of this proposed project is to replace gas powered buses with electric powered, install solar-powered charging stations, and purchase the current project site which is currently being leased. There is a need to help reduce air emissions as part of the goals laid out within the New Mexico State Management Plan. Additionally, by purchasing the land, the SCRTD would not be subjected to increased lease costs and the funds can be put to use on providing services to these low-income communities. The SCRTD will be using federal funds to purchase three (3) battery electric replacement buses and electric charging infrastructure at the Sunland Park garage (295 Quinella Road) and staff training on the electric vehicle propulsion systems. The SCRTD will also use the funds to acquire the property that is currently leased. The project area contains two existing buildings (Administration/Training and Maintenance buildings) and approximately 7.94 acres of disturbed, excess land. In total, the project area is 11.16 acres.
