Information about the 2018 ABQ Youth Pass.

About the ABQ Youth Pass

Participants can take ABQ RIDE buses from June 1 to July 31, 2018.

Each participant will receive two passes, both good for one month each. The first pass should be activated on June 1, and the second pass on July 1.

To activate, dip it into the farebox on any ABQ RIDE bus. Only swipe it after that. Make sure passes are not folded, wrinkled or have the sticker folded over or peeled off.
