ABQ RIDE Reprising Late Night Service from Last Weekend in May to Close of N.M. State Fair
It’s about to get that much easier going to and staying later at fun spots along Central Avenue during summer weekends, now that ABQ RIDE’s 66 Late Night is swinging into service.
Starting Friday, May 30, 2014, service on Route #66-Central will be extended by one hour, with the last trips ending at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays until September 20, 2014.
You can save a lot of money by riding the #66 on the summer weekends and leaving your car behind,” said Bruce Rizzieri, Director of ABQ RIDE. “That’s because 66 Late Night can take you to almost any of Albuquerque’s summer hot spots.”
66 Late Night uses Route #66-Central buses, which run from ABQ RIDE’s Park & Ride at Tramway and Wenonah all the way to the Central and Unser Transit Center. Riders along Central can access four of Albuquerque’s main entertainment districts- Old Town, Downtown, Nob Hill and East Central by using the #66 and do so at later hours.
66 Late Night runs every 30 minutes, with the last pickups through Downtown at about 1:00 a.m. The fare is $1 per trip.
“66 Late Night is one of the affordable ways you can keep your family entertained this summer,” said Rizzieri. “It is one of the services that ABQ RIDE operates to make sure the travel needs of Albuquerque’s residents are met.”
