New Mexico Texas Coaches, LLC (1-800-287-5466) will provide holiday airport transportation for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring breaks.

  • During the holiday breaks cadets are not permitted to remain in the barracks since there are no services (barracks supervision, medical support, or food services). The details governing cadet holiday buses will be published on the Parent E-News and NMMI Website by 1 August 2017.  Please note NMMI does not manage holiday transportation, you must contact New Mexico Texas Coaches, LLC for details and pricing. The bus companies are not responsible for delayed or cancelled flights and are not obligated to hold bus departures from the airport. We always recommend that cadets arrive at the airport well before bus departure times for return to Roswell.
