HOLIDAY BUS TRANSPORTATION TO AIRPORTS
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.
- Cadets and parents should expect bus departures to Albuquerque Airport at 0600 (6 am) on Saturday, 18 November with return to NMMI from Albuquerque Airport on Sunday, 26 November at 1800 (6 pm) for Thanksgiving, 0600 (6 am) on Friday, 15 December with return to NMMI from Albuquerque Airport on Sunday, 7 January at 1800 (6 pm), and 0600 (6 am) on Saturday, 30 March with return to NMMI from Albuquerque Airport on Sunday, 8 April at 1800 (6 pm) for Spring Break.
- NMMI provides a shuttle to Roswell airport with departures from campus on the same days and times for cadets departing from campus to Albuquerque (see previous paragraph for times). NMMI does not provide a shuttle for returning cadets after breaks from Roswell airport due to limited resources and multiple arrivals.
- Sunshine Cab Company, (575) 910-3400, provides local transportation. The city of Roswell also operates local city buses and cadets in uniform may ride the city buses for free.
