Reallocation

Route 40 - D-RIDE

Weekdays - Proposal is to reallocate the resources currently used by the D-Ride - due to below average productivity (riders-per-revenue hour), and redundant service on other routes, particularly on 2nd Street and Lomas Boulevard - to improve service on other routes, modify the Downtown circulation of two routes (see below), and add a fare-free zone for all routes inbound ending at the Alvarado Transportation Center

Route Modifications

Route 8 - Menaul & Route 36 - 12th Street & Rio Grande Boulevard

All Days - Proposal to change downtown routing to use 5th Street, Silver Avenue, 2nd Street, and Gold Avenue to and from the Alvarado Transportation Center instead of Lomas Boulevard and 2nd Street, which will replace some Route 40 D-RIDE service.

Additions

Route 36 - 12th Street & Rio Grande Boulevard

Weekdays - Currently Route 36 makes a large one-way loop. Proposal to add service in the opposite direction as well with 60-minute frequency.

Route 1 - Juan Tabo

Weekdays - Currently the service frequency on Route 1 is 70 minutes during the mid-day - 9:30 a.m. to 2:10 p.m. Proposal to increase frequency to 35 - 40 minutes, which will nearly double mid-day service.

Route 50 - Airport & Downtown

Sundays - Currently, there is no bus service to MLK Jr. Boulevard, Yale Boulevard or the Sunport on Sundays. Proposal to add service from 9:15 a.m. to 5:55 p.m., with frequency of 60 - 70 minutes.

Route 141 - San Mateo

Route 141 is the most productive ABQ RIDE route (riders-per-revenue hour) on Saturdays & Sundays. Proposal to add more weekend service.

Saturdays - add one earlier Northbound trip (6:18 a.m.), add one later Northbound trip (8:50 p.m.), and add two later Southbound trips (9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.).

Sundays - increase frequency from 40 minutes to 30 minutes from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Route 5 - Montgomery, Carlisle & Lomas

Route 5 is the third most productive ABQ RIDE route (riders-per-revenue hour) on Saturdays.

Saturdays - Proposal to add one earlier trip in each direction (7:40 a.m. Eastbound and 7:25 a.m. Westbound) and two later Eastbound trips (6:20 p.m. and 7 p.m.).

Route 155 - Coors

Sundays - Proposal to add one earlier Northbound trip (9:15 a.m.) and one later Southbound trip (4:54 p.m.).
