ABQ RIDE Detouring Two Routes into Kirtland AFB on Columbus Day, Oct. 14

Wyoming and Carlisle Gates Closed for Federal Columbus Day Holiday


Two of ABQ RIDE’s routes that serve Kirtland Air Force Base will be detouring for the federal Columbus Day holiday, Monday, Oct. 14, 2013.  The detours are necessary because Kirtland is closing its Wyoming and Carlisle Gates for the holiday.

Because of the closings, Route #31-Wyoming will enter and exit the base only during peak hours by detouring to Eubank, and it will use a different route than usual to get to its end-point at Building 825 when on the base.  It will not enter the base at all during midday hours when it will turn around near the Wyoming Gate.

Both the morning and evening runs of the #98-Wyoming Commuter will utilize the Truman Gate as their starting/ending points for the day, instead of the Carlisle Gate.  Like the #31-Wyoming, the route will detour to the Eubank Gate instead of the Wyoming Gate when it enters the base in the morning and leaves in the afternoon causing some changes in routing while on the base.
