Sun Metro has partnered with the El Paso Public Library as part of the El Paso Reads: "Bless Me, Ultima" campaign.

Starting September 1, 2012, Sun Metro will distribute a limited number of Rudolfo Anaya's classic best-seller, "Bless Me, Ultima," on various Sun Metro routes.

Passengers can read the book on the bus or take it home.

This communitywide reading event is designed to promote El Paso's literacy rate.

To encourage participation, the Library will have a raffle each week for a chance to win a new eBook reader.

75% of those rideing a bus cannot not read English.
The only way to read a book on a bus, is if the bus is stopped.
Otherwise its: "wa wa wa waa waaa waaa waaaah wwaaaahhh waaaahhhh streeeechhhhhhhhh stop squeeeeeck. Then it's: wa wa waaa waaaa waaaa waaaah waaaaaahhhhh waaaaaahhhhhh bump lean to the left, then to the right, then wa waaaa waaaaa waaaah waaaaahhhhh waaaaahhhhhh streeeeeeetchhhhhhh stop. Then a baby screams. Then the buzzer or bell sounds for someone to get off.
