Riding the Bus

Public transportation is a critical link to jobs, economic expansion, and quality of life in our community.

ABQ RIDE will assist any individuals who need help planning a bus trip from home to the worksite. Call 243-RIDE to plan your trip.

ABQ RIDE maps and schedules can be provided for employees at the worksite. Employees who choose to take the bus may have the opportunity to purchase a monthly bus pass at a discounted rate if their employer is a member of ABQ RIDE's Business Partnership Program.

Try alternative transportation and leave the worrying to us!

You probably are aware that alternative transportation has a lot of advantages over driving alone. First, it saves you money on gas, parking and car maintenance. Second, it can be faster and less stressful than fighting rush hour traffic. Finally, having fewer cars on the road is great for our environment!

Like many people, perhaps you were hesitant to leave your car at home and use an alternative mode for fear of being stranded. Worry no more! ABQ RIDE has the solution.
