The draft Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) was released in September 2013 and is shown in the map to the right. It is a combination of Alternatives 2 and 3; Alternatives 1 and 4 were not recommended for advancement. All four alternatives can be viewed below in "How was the draft LPA identified?"
- Most of this route would include Bus Rapid Transit features such as bus-only lanes to bypass traffic congestion and improve travel times.
- The proposed route runs primarily down University Boulevard from Menaul to Avenuenida Cesar Chavez, where it would zig east to Yale and south to the Sunport.
- The route would also take a brief detour to the UNM Main Campus via Lomas, Las Lomas, and Redondo.
- Several park-and-rides would be incorporated into this system, including the existing UNM remote parking lots that are currently served by UNM shuttles, as well as a new public park-and-ride north of Menaul.
