ABQ RIDE Offering Limited, Fixed Route Service for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday

Sun Vans Running Regular Service

In observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 20, 2020, ABQ RIDE will operate a regular Saturday schedule, except for Route #2-Eubank buses, which will have a slightly modified schedule due to gate closures at Kirtland Air Force Base. Sun Vans will run their regular schedules.

Despite several federal contractors at Kirtland Air Force Base working the holiday, the Base still plans on closing its Wyoming Gate and having limited hours for the Gibson Gate. The Eubank Gate will remain open.

Due to the gate closures, ABQ RIDE will add two additional runs of the Route #2-Eubank bus on Monday, January 20:

  • A morning, southbound trip to KAFB, starting at La Cueva High School at 7:08 a.m. and ending at Bldg. 825 at 7:51 a.m. You can find the times this special, morning #2 bus will be at your bus stop by clicking HERE.
  • An evening, northbound trip, leaving Bldg. 825 at 5:29 p.m. and arriving at La Cueva High School at 6:11 p.m. You can find the times this special evening #2 bus will be at your bus stop by clicking HERE.

There will be no Commuter bus service or Rail Runner Express connecting bus service. The New Mexico Rail Runner Express will be operating on a Sunday schedule on January 20.

Assistance will be available on January 20 for Sun Van reservations by calling 243-RIDE (7433). However, Customer Service windows at the Alvarado Transportation Center at First and Central SW will not be open that day.

Regularly scheduled service will resume on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.
