66 Late Night to Extend Weekend Service on Central Ave
During summer weekends, getting to and staying later at fun spots along Central Avenue is about to get much easier; now that ABQ RIDE’s 66 Late Night is ready to swing into service.
Starting Friday, May 24th, 2013, service on Route #66-Central will be extended by one hour, until approximately 1:00 am on Fridays and Saturdays until September 21, 2013.
“66 Late Night can take you to almost any of Albuquerque’s summer hot spots,” said Mayor Richard J. Berry. “And you can save a lot of money by riding the #66 and leaving your car behind.”
66 Late Night utilizes the #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 use this bus to access four of Albuquerque’s main entertainment districts- Old Town, Downtown, Nob Hill and East Central 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 just one way ABQ RIDE strives to meet the travel needs of Albuquerque residents,” said Bruce Rizzieri, Director of ABQ RIDE. “Along with the Youth Summer Fun Pass, it’s one of the affordable ways to keep your family entertained this summer.”
