ABQ RIDE Providing Shuttle Service Around Detours at the Twinkle Light Parade

Transit Details Shuttle Routes, Pickups, and Detours in Regular Bus Service for Saturday, Dec. 7

ABQ RIDE is providing shuttle service along Central Ave. during the Twinkle Light Parade and the rest of the evening on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019. The shuttles will help people get to the event from the Central and Lomas corridors. They will also help fill in service when regular buses detour for the parade.

Five ABQ RIDE bus routes that serve or cross Central Ave. will be detouring during the annual parade in Nob Hill. The detours begin at 2 p.m. and run until 11 p.m.

One shuttle will operate on Central between University and Girard. Another shuttle will operate on a clockwise loop from Monte Vista to Lomas to Washington, then turn west on Copper (which becomes Campus, west of Carlisle) before once again joining Monte Vista. The shuttle stops will be located at:

  • Monte Vista, north of Campus
  • Monte Vista & Marquette
  • All #11-Lomas stops between Carlisle and Washington
  • Washington and Roma
  • Washington & Marquette
  • Copper & Sierra
  • Copper & Morningside
  • Copper & Hermosa
  • Campus & Amherst
  • Campus & Berkeley

During the parade, eastbound Routes #66–Central, #766 ART Red Line and #777ART Green Line will divert from Central to north on University Blvd. A temporary stop for all three Central routes is being located on University, just north of Central. The routes then turn east on Lomas and south on San Mateo before heading back to their regular routes on eastbound Central. 

Westbound, the #66, #766 and #777 ART will turn north from Central onto San Mateo, west on Lomas, then south on University before resuming their regular routes on westbound Central. A temporary stop for all three Central routes is being located on San Mateo, just north of Central. Also, the #766 and #777 ART will stop at all the regular bus stops on Lomas.

#790-Rapid Ride/Blue Line will detour only for its eastbound route. From eastbound Lomas, it will turn south on University, east on Avenida Cesar Chavez, then north on Yale before reconnecting with Central and resuming its regular route. The route will also service temporary #790 stops at Lomas, west of University.

Westbound Route #16-Broadway/University/Gibson (The “BUG”) will detour from north on Carlisle onto westbound Lead, then south on Girard back to its regular route.  The eastbound #16 will turn east on Coal from Girard, then south on Carlisle back to its regular route.
