On March 19, 2007, the Albuquerque City Council took an important step in planning for and protecting Albuquerque’s future when it passed a bill (O-07-71) creating the 21st-Centry Transportation Task Force.
By initiating a comprehensive and inclusive dialogue about the city’s transportation and transit needs, the Task Force will be able to provide thoughtful and balanced recommendations that will make Albuquerque a competitive, attractive, and sustainable city for generations to come.

Bill O-08-27 (extended the reporting deadline from May1, 2008 to September 1, 2008)
The Task Force began meeting in January 2008 and has met twice a month since then. Agendas, minutes, presentations, and other materials from each Task Force meeting are available below.
- ¼ Cent Transportation Infrastructure Tax,
- development of a modern streetcar in the context of roadway, city-wide public transit, and other multi-modal improvements,

The composition of the Task Force is intended to be as diverse as possible so that the views represented by and recommendations that come from the group are an accurate reflection of what people want to see happen in Albuquerque. From the largest employers in the city to various advocacy groups and technical resources, the Task Force is made up of many stakeholder groups whose participation and input is critical to making this a successful undertaking.
