Location and Transportation

Alamogordo is conveniently located at the intersection of two four-lane highways, U.S. 70 and U.S. 54. These two highways provide excellent connections to two major north-south and east-west interstate highways, I-10 and I-25. Dry weather is the rule 300-plus days a year, so truckers and tourists alike find the southern part of New Mexico a pleasant route year-round.

Local transportation is provided by Alamogordo’s award-winning Z-Trans Public Transportation Service, providing service to Holloman Air Force Base, Alamogordo, La Luz, Alamorosa, Tularosa and Mescalero. This mass transit service is available Monday – Saturday, 6:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. for $1 per ride.
