ABQ RIDE Holiday Service

"No Service" notices are posted inside buses at least one week in advance. Reminders are published in the Albuquerque Journal.

Next ABQ RIDE Holiday: Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 19, 2018

ABQ RIDE will run its regular weekday schedule on Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 19, 2018 for both fixed routes and Sun Van service.

That includes Commuter Service and Rail Runner Express Bus service (the New Mexico Rail Runner Express will also run its regular weekday schedule).

Customer Service windows at the Alvarado Transportation Center at 1st and Central SW also will be open that day. 243-RIDE (7433) assistance will also be available for Sun Van reservations.

Because Kirtland Air Force Base will be closing its Wyoming Gate and briefly the Gibson Gate that day, ABQ RIDE will detour six of its routes into Kirtland. Detours can be found in the Route Detours page.
