ABQ RIDE Offering Limited, Fixed Route Service for Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday
In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014, ABQ RIDE will operate a regular Saturday schedule, with limited changes in schedule for Routes #31-Wyoming and #157-Montaño/Uptown/Kirtland.
Because Kirtland Air Force Base plans on keeping its Wyoming Gate open that day, plus several federal contractors on base plan on working that day, ABQ RIDE plans the following:
- Adding one southbound #31-Wyoming trip to KAFB, starting at La Cueva High School at 7:09 a.m. and ending at Bldg. 800 at 7:45 a.m.
- Having the remaining southbound #31 trips go to Bldg. 800 to turn around at the south end.
- Extending a northbound trip of Route #31 to leave Bldg. 800 about 4:27 p.m., going north to La Cueva High School at 5:14 p.m.
- Adding one trip to Route #157-Montaño/Uptown/Kirtland starting at 6:39 a.m. from the Northwest Transit Center and arriving at Bldg. 800 at 7:45 a.m.
There will be no Commuter Service or Rail Runner Express Bus service (the New Mexico Rail Runner Express will be operating on a Holiday schedule).
Regularly scheduled service will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014.
