Seasonal Changes for ABQ RIDE Routes in December, 2014

Schedules Reflect Holidays and Periodic Service Updates


With many students and staff going on their holiday break and several holidays in store, ABQ RIDE is making annual adjustments in its schedules.

Starting Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, Route #790-Rapid Ride/Blue Line will be adjusting its schedule (see highlighted areas on the route’s printed schedules). This service will resume on Jan. 12, 2015 with the start of UNM’s Spring Semester.

On Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014, the old Route 16/18 (Broadway/University/Gibson, The “BUG”) will now be designated simply as Route #16. It will also be changing its route to provide more two-way service. CLICK HERE for more information.

The southbound #16 will still pick up passengers at the Alvarado Transportation Center from Bus Bay M. The new, northbound route of the #16 will now pick up passengers from the ATC’s Bus Bay N (the commuter pick up area). The new route will provide more two-way service on Broadway, Odelia, and University.  The south end of Route #16 will now be on San Jose Ave. SE, instead of Woodward Rd. SE.

On Monday, Dec. 15, 2014, Route #162-Ventana Ranch Commuter will drop a morning trip and add a trip in the evening. The adjustment will be made because the previous first trip of the day had very little ridership, while an extra afternoon trip is needed to accommodate requests for later service.

ABQ RIDE’s Holiday schedule will also entail several days (Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) without service, as well as service adjustments on Christmas Eve.  For more on the holiday schedule, plus routes affected on Christmas Eve, CLICK HERE.
